The only problem with caley is that because it is based in the centre of Glasgow, food and drinks are not that cheap from anywhere in te city centre. Luckily we have plenty of cafe's that sell good, relatively cheap food and coffee! Being in the city centre, it is pretty easy to get anywhere you need to go. It is right opposite from the bus station and a 10minute walk to queen st train station.×
The prices on.campus are more than reasonable & there is a good variety of things to eat and drink.Report

food on campus is cheap but its your typical canteen food. pleanty of weatherspoons in the city and cheap cafes, lots of opportunities for part-time work in call centres/restaurants etc. cost of transport is cheap! look into buying student bus pass, works out really cheap if you buy 10 week card, subway is also cheap! and walking even cheaper lol×
Best place to eat is Refectory, besides that University is in the city centre so everything is closeReport
My costs where pretty easy to manage since I stayed at home. All I needed to worry about where travel expenses.Report
Optometry books very expensive (60-90 pounds each new).Report

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
