Expenditure and Its Return
How much did I spend last year as an international student at the University of Warwick?
I registered to pursue PhD on 6th January 2005,
Tuition Fee £12 000.00
Sport Centre £32.00
Car Park (£1.60/day X 240 day) £384.00
House rent £5040.00
Car insurance £600.00
Road Tax £160.00
Car maintenance (Mainly no labour charge, I’m Mechanic) £200.00
Then, what I got?
Study room in a box size 2 X 2 X 2 m. This room located at the basement of School of Engineering. There is no window and no ventilation system. For the future student, a piece of advice from me, better to buy a pair of ear-plug because this room is a bit noisy.
Used to, 4 students occupied this room but recently 2 local students got a better room. Maniq and I still been punished in this room, the reason is probably because of tuition fees earned from the international student is not enough to provide proper facilities in campus. As a result, Maniq has spent most of his time in the library but I continue breathing with less than 21% O2 in this room.
Academic, ……etc. I will write again later on

How much is that in total? Spending that much on parking might mean a car park permit would be a good investment.

Car parking is only a maximum of 150 days, as you only have to pay mon-fri during term time. It is cheaper to buy a permit if you are in more than 3 full days/week during termtime.
Also that is a lot too spend on groceries and gas/electric for a single person.
Total cost ~£24k thats rather a lot.

If you don't mind me saying, you're paying well over the odds for accommodation, too.
And isn't your gas/electric shared with other people? There's no way you can be paying that yourself.
