Document What is meant by Composite Living Costs (CLC)?

Most students have to pay for essential items such as food, bills, clothes and leisure/entertainment, these are known as Composite Living Costs (CLC).

We will apply fixed amounts for these to ensure that all students are treated fairly, regardless of where they are living and studying and what their individual lifestyle circumstances may be.


The amounts used will depend on your living arrangements and whether you are attending a university in London.

The rates are as follows:

 

Student profile
 

Living outside London (weekly)
 

Living in London (weekly)
 

Single
 

£78
 

£121
 

Student with partner
 

£122
 

£165
 

Children* (each)
 

£72
 

£72
 
 
*In addition, we will add an extra one-off family premium cost of £20 where a student has at least one child.

When applying for ESF you do not need to declare these costs as we will apply a one-off fixed amount when assessing your claim.
