fantastic oppertunity, if accom is paid for and ur car, u should be able to save 60% of that salary if not more. Nottingham is a lage student city, so there are very cheap avenues in whatever you want or need.

if you want any other advice, dont hesitate!

I think there is a lot more thinking you will need to do to determine if this is a good move for you. The numbers don't sound bad, but you need to compare that against how much you would make in India, which job is better for your career, will have you or will you need to meet friends in UK, etc. There is plenty more to consider than just a salary. I would mentally walk through what you expect from each facet of your life (personal and career) over the next 1,3,5 and 10 years. Then consider how living in the UK will affect those goals and then how living in India will do the same.

You also might want to talk it over with family and friends to see if there is anyone with this experience that can help. If they know you it will be a lot more insightful than a forum like this. Good Luck either way!
