Dundee ‘most cost-effective place to study in Scotland’

Monday, August 6th, 2007

The BBC is reporting that according to the Royal Bank of Scotland

“Dundee is the most cost-effective place in Scotland to study, according to a survey of students’ spending habits.

The city came top in a value-for-money comparison, ahead of Glasgow, St Andrews, Aberdeen and Edinburgh.

The research from the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) found Dundee had lower living costs and higher wages for part-time jobs.

The report said students in Dundee could be more than £1,100 a year better off than those in the Scottish capital.

The survey found that the average Dundee student would spend £134 on rent and bills, and earn £113 in one week.”

So now I know what to say about any complaints from students when we ask them to buy the occasional book…
