If you’ve never lived away from home before, you’ll be surprised how much a bunch of bananas or an energy bill actually comes to when you’re fending for yourself at uni.

Sure, there are some expenses that you can spare but there are also costs that you will have to factor into your budget – but how much does it really cost to live and study as a uni student?

We’ve crunched the number to give you a breakdown of what an average uni student can expect to spend on bills, breakfast, bus fare, and etc. in an academic year, compared the expenses of a Fusion student.
