A video making rounds on social media captured the lamentation of a Nigerian student in the UK and the struggles to make ends meet.
The lady who works 20 hours weekly and earns £1020 monthly broke down her expenses which ends up not being enough to sustain basic needs.
Here’s her breakdown;
Rent – £775
Phone bill – £25
Water – £30
Electricity – £120
Broadband – £25
Netflix – £7
Apple Pay – £2.29

She, however, concluded that the idea of having a Masters degree in the UK is nothing but a scam.
Her claim sparked mixed reactions from netizens; some who condemned her for exaggerating the cost of living while others advised her to cut down her expenses.
“Stop discouraging people. Student houses here, bills inclusive, highest price I have seen in Sheffield is £600 despite the fact that it’s one of the most expensive place to live in the uk. Una go just come online dey lie give people. ?,” a social media user wrote in reaction.
