Budget! In regards to food there are other options than only eating on campus. Town is a five minute walk away with the likes of Greggs and McDonalds to grab some dinner. Also with the University being so close to town there are opportunities for part time jobs in the shops. Seasonal Staff are always being advertised for near Xmas time, so even if you can't commit to a part-time job this is a great way to earn some extra money. I personally didn't experience any additional course costs on the course that I was on. With transport, if you are not living near the University there is the train station nearby, you can obtain a University Parking Permit to park in the car parks around the university this may be at a cost. I travelled into University by bus, Arriva have Student Saver Tickets which you can buy either each term or a little cheaper buying for the whole year. These work out to be alot cheaper than paying daily or even purchasing a weekly ticket. You purchase the Student Saver Ticket for different areas and can choose to purchase a ticket that covers how far or as little as you want depending on preference and whether you use the bus to travel to other areas. The bonus is they are not just for week travel and can be used on a weekend and also out of term time, so a great deal if you regularly travel by bus.
