Hi all,

I've been admitted to Oxford Said and am preparing to make the big move there in the fall. I'm trying to plan a realistic budget but can't find much insight on how I should plan to spend monthly during the MBA (and still haven't found alumni willing to share). While Said does provide an estimated budget, the range is too big (£12,168 - £18,655) and I really don't know where I should place my budget.

Does anyone here have any idea on what would be an ok monthly budget for Oxford? I know it depends a lot but just a general idea would be of great help!

Thanks in advance

If I were you, I will choose the average of (£12,168 - £18,655). I assume you are someone that does not waste money or spend money on frivolities.

Hi! I lived in Oxford for about 6 months. Depending on your college and their graduate housing availability, I would average about 1200 pounds per month if you are living in college. If you are living outside, it will cost more but should still be under 1500 for a room - especially if you live on Cowley Rd or near Brooks and not in the center (just a 20 min walk or 5 min bus ride). Beers are 4 pounds, bagel and coffee are 5 pounds, meals are always less than 10 (you can also save some money by eating in college dining). I also suggest sandwich shops at the market for cheap eats. Club membership is about 15 pounds a year. If you want to be part of the guild, I think that is 100 pounds. Hope that gives you some guidance!

I graduated from Oxford Said in 2016. Your monthly costs will be very dependent on your rent. I lived in graduate housing and paid 500 pounds a month. However, I had friends who lived in apartments and paid anywhere from 800 pounds or even more.

Beyond that your next most expensive expensive will be food. If you plan on eating primarily in your college, your meals will be subsidized and you will probably need to allocate a few hundred pounds to food.

Then there will be miscellaneous expenses like travel and entertainment, again it will be very dependent on your personality.
