Cost of Living

Living costs vary between the various university cities you will visit during the EMJMD ACES+ course.  Costs in the UK and France (Nantes) are generally higher than Crete.  Universities have provided the following estimates as general guidance:

Oban, UK: Accommodation with utilities (i.e., electricity and/ or gas) costs approximately GBP £380 to £480 per month, meaning that overall monthly expenses, including food, daily fare for public transportation if living off campus and additional expenses, are probably GBP £800-£900 or €950-€1,000. For general living costs you can find useful information on how to budget on the International student calculator website.
