Here's where you should study in the UK if you want to keep costs down

Going to university is expensive wherever you are, but some cities are more affordable than others.

When you add up the cost of tuition fees, accommodation, course reading material, everyday living costs, social events and everything else that comes with student life, keeping costs to a minimum can seem like a near-impossible feat.

However, new world rankings by QS have revealed which cities offer students the most affordability by comparing the pricing of a number of factors, including tuition fees, everyday essentials and accommodation. 

On a global scale, it might not come as too much of a surprise that UK cities didn't rank all that highly - if you're looking for the cheapest place to study, you'll need to head over to Budapest, Hungary. 

Closer to home though, Scotland's Aberdeen ranks as the most affordable UK city, closely followed by Manchester and Newcastle. 

The 10 most affordable UK cities are listed below, and you can find out more about the rankings here.
