Scottish universities have both the highest and lowest monthly student incomes. Students in Aberdeen have the highest overall term-time income at £1583.80 per month, when taking into account all sources of money such as work, personal savings and money from parents. Glasgow has the lowest total income at £786.60 a month.
Students at Oxford and Cambridge spend the most hours studying; 124hrs and 138hrs respectively each term. This is significantly above the national average of 91 hours and more than double the number of hours that students in London spend studying (62 hrs).
Dan Jones, NatWest’s Head of Student Accounts, said, “The Student Living Index helps students to see how they might budget while at University. Our main priority is to help students stay on top of their finances throughout their studies”.
