I am a fresh graduate that's going to work in Somerset and live in Bristol in September. Would it be possible to live in student style houses even though I am no longer a student? if no, what are some cheap places that are popular for students and young p^rofessionals please?
Thank you!

Hi

I'm moving into a flat in Bristol this weekend. I was wondering if anyone could give me a rough idea of what my water and electricity bills roughly might come to. It's just me living in a two bedroom flat. I'm at work during the day Monday to Friday so just at home evenings and weekends.

thanks

Hi All,

There is a possibility that my wife and I will be moving over from South Africa. We are both in the medical field.I am an Orthotist and She is a physiotherapist. I would imagine we will both be on similar salaries of about 30K plus a year. Where would be a nice place to live and at what cost are we looking at. Bearing in mind I will be posted at the hospital. Any advice on places to stay, transport options etc etc would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks in advance.

Sean

Hi, I was wondering about the same issue. Can my husband and I live with a 31,000/year salary in Bristol? Will it be enough to live well? Thank you very much in advance.
#Aza on Feb 17, 2015 :
Will it be enough with a 33,000 a year for two persons (me and wife)?

And what quality of live would I expect with that salary.

Cheers!

@Martin
You would probably need another source of income unless you have a rent-free place to stay.
#Martin on Feb 06, 2015 :
Hello.
I want to apply for a scholarship in Bristol University. The grant amount is 800 euros (about 600 GBP) per month. It would be enough? Or I need to have another source of income?

Thanks
