And London isn’t even the most expensive!!
Drinking a pint is suitable for all occasions. Have you just learned that you have entered a Russell Group university? Take a pint! Did you fail your A-Levels? Drown your sorrows in a pint. Are you really skinny? Go out for a cheap pint.
Pints can be expensive, and they differ from university to university and now, thanks to new data from NatWestwe can reveal the Russell Group Universities with the highest and lowest pint prices.
You won’t be surprised to know that sometimes you’ll have to break the bank if you feel like going for a pint, but you’re at a southern university.
Here is a comprehensive list of Russell Group universities with the highest and lowest average prices.
At the other end of the table is Durham (I know, I don’t believe it either), where students pay an average of £3.20 for a pint. It’s not too late to apply through compensation, abandon all your plans and opt for PINT.
Cambridge and Exetah students, sorry Exeterpay around £3.60 for a pint – not too bad!
Good old and loyal Leeds Uni students pay an average of £3.70 for a pint. It’s 10p more than Cambridge but you know what, money can’t put a price vibes.
Sticking to the north with Newcastle and Sheffield where students pay an average of £3.80 for a pint. Then there’s York, Nottingham and Liverpool, all of which cater to students willing to pay £3.90 for a pint.
Now that’s a warning, we’re out of the £3 band, so things are starting to get a bit depressing. Students from Edinburgh, Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester all pay £4 for a pint. But hey, it’s not as expensive as those universities in the South!
Anyone traveling to Cardiff or Southampton can expect to pay £4.10 for a pint.
Students in Bristol are looking for £4.70 for a pint and anyone heading to University of London can be prepared to shell out £4.90 for a pint!
But that’s where things go wrong, the top spot for the most expensive pint in a Russell Group college town is Oxford, where students pay an average of £5.50 for a singular pint.
As if paying for college and all those disposable vapes wasn’t enough, start saving for your pints.
