Heard tution fees are rising (by a great deal) next year
Scholarships typically provide a monthly allowance of around 1000 pounds so I guess that can be a rough gauge.

The UK system differs from that of the Aussie's. You needn't pay upon acceptance. The payment will come when you register with your choice uni. There are tuition, accomodation, internet and other payment to be made in the registration process. Most universities will allow instalments for tuition fees and accomodation.

Do not need to worry, you will be informed at every step.

If you're going to do law in universities other than oxbridge, school fees range from 10,000-13,000 pounds/year depending on which school you go to and whether there's scholarship or not.
For living, if you don't dine out often, you can keep monthly expenses below 300-450 pounds/month. For accommodation, expect to pay anything from 80-180 pounds per week for a room depending on where you stay. Further up North England, rent tends to get cheaper. It can get rather expensive in South England and London.
Is S$180K enough for three years? Definitely. If you provide things like insurance, a round trip air ticket, and misc items, you can still keep costs below S$40-50K a year, but that means you need to live simply and avoid unnecessary expenditure.

Thanks! What about the costs for Oxbridge? Is S$180K still sufficient for 3 years of study? Appreciate your input! Thanks so much!

oxford law starting in 2012/2013 would start from GBP$19.4k (tuition fees + college fees), living expenses for 9mth is ~gbp$10K. if U are starting 2013/2013 then expect ~sgd$195k
http://www.ox.ac.uk/feesandfunding/search/launch/

cambridge is ~gbp$13k + gbp$5K (college fees), living gbp$8.5K or 9 mth.
its cheaper at ~sgd$180K

geraldto seem to missed out the college fees that oxbridge makes international students pay.
if U start later expect fees to go up by ~5% each yr.

Thanks a bunch!! For oxbridge, are the tuition fees fixed over the 3 years i.e. locked in from the 1st year? Or can the universities increase the tuition fees every year over the 3 years? Many Thanks!!!
