Belfast is the most affordable UK city in which to be a student, according to a survey by Ulster Bank sister institution NatWest.

The city is closely followed by Southampton and Nottingham as cities where the combination of low living costs and the earning potential for term-time jobs make for economical university destinations.

Student loans remain the main source of income for students ahead of money from parents but the additional expense of being a student is the main motivation for students to take a part-time job, NatWest's annual student living index said.

Students at Cambridge and Oxford spend most of their time studying while those at Southampton work the longest hours and receive the most income.
