When you’re moving to a new country it can be a pretty overwhelming experience. You have to get your bearings sorted out pretty quickly and just grow up a lot in a short time. So one of the main things you want to get covered is a mobile plan as soon as possible. So you can communicate and get a mobile number which is needed for so many things in the UK. We’ve found the best Uk mobile plans for international students. Of course, it depends on your budget and how much you’re willing to spend. However, as the majority of students are on a budget we’ve decided to keep it to 10 a month. You can buy these sims at the airport or in corner shops make sure you don’t buy one with a pre-loaded plan instead just buy the sim and load whatever plan you want.


Lebara offers some of the best value for money mobile plans for anyone who needs to keep in contact with anyone internationally. They offer a variety of plans to suit your budget. The best plan which we would strongly recommend is their 4GB monthly plan for £ 10. This offers the following

  • 100 international minutes to 41 countries
  • Calls within the UK are unlimited,
  • Texts within the UK are unlimited,
  • Calling Lebara to Lebara is unlimited
  • Texting Lebara to Lebara is unlimited
  • 4GB data

It’s so easy to set it up and you can manage and suspend your account whenever you don’t need it within a few seconds. Their app makes it super easy to manage your mobile plan. So all the features along with ease of setting it up the moment you’re in the country, are among the reasons it makes our list as one of the best mobile plans for international students in the UK.

Lyca has focused greatly on offering the services that international students need and can often be found in freshers fairs offering some incentives for you to sign up. Their £ 10 plan is nearly identically to that offered by Lebara but also includes EU roaming. However, its not as easy to set up as Lebara in our opinion and the customer service from lebara is far superior. So again the trade-off is based upon your preferences. The list of feature from Lyca are listed below::

  • 100 international minutes to 41 countries
  • Calls within the UK are unlimited,
  • Texts within the UK are unlimited,
  • Calling Lyca to Lyca is unlimited
  • Texting Lyca to Lyca is unlimited
  • 4GB data
  • EU roaming

So please choose based on what suits you best and as we all have different requirements so there is no best plan per se. We would recommend that you and a group of friends get the same plan so you can make the most of the unlimited calling and texting if you’re on the same network.
