Be that as it may, the reality is, nothing can really compare to the full experience of on-campus college life and when making that all-important decision on where to go to college, the benefits of a beautiful campus shouldn’t be underestimated.

Living in London

To write this piece on being a student in London we’re going to assume that you have little money. If you have lots of cash we recommend that you visit here for 'Rich London Student Advice'.

Transport costs can burn through the student loan very quickly. Our preferred option is to get on your bike. Ensure that you purchase a substantial lock and wear a helmet (safety first!). If you have to use public transport, plan the journey to be cost effective, and get an Oyster card if you haven’t already.

There are unbelieveable sources of entertainment in London, it’s best to get the most out of the free attractions. To get you started, visit the British Museum, Tate Modern and Natural History Museum. Exploring London takes much longer than your 3-4 years at uni, so start early and make the most of having time to spare in one of the world’s greatest cities.

Eating cheaply is possible, we have a number of favourite places dotted around the capital:
Bánh Mì Bay - Vietnamese restaurants are sprouting up across the city, the unique menu includes the char grilled pork Franco-Viet baguette.
Bi Bim Bap - the Soho-based Korean restaurant is the ideal place to take a date on a budget. A delicous meal for two with drinks for under £25!
Comptoir Libanais - a stunning Lebanese café with meze plates allowing you to sample a variety of flavours on a student budget.

London nightlife is fast moving, so it is impossible to recommend anywhere! It’s best to look for deals on a daily basis. Search online as well as from those over-enthusiastic promoters. However, ensure you read the small print; £5 entry is pretty good but not if it’s £10 a pint!

London is a notoriously expensive city for living costs and night life. However, I encourage students to take advantage of student nights at various bars and clubs across London, including student bars on campus, which are often much more affordable. Transport is competitively priced compared with other cities in the UK, such as Manchester. The cheapest way to travel by public transport in London is by bus, where anyone with a contactless card or Oyster can make an unlimited number of journeys within one hour for £1.50.

Lovely place to study, but it is very costly to live there. Double edged sword if you will

Although in London you wouldn’t think it. A train journey away from central London and cheap transport into the city

A great experience. The city has a lot to offer especially historically. You will get to try various cuisines as well. Quiet expensive but worth it.

Central London - Euston. Expensive, but there are ways around that, and the range of things you'll find is vast. Nights out are great, but also expensive. Plenty of transport options in the underground and bus system, although traffic can be hectic. Always interesting things going on, and truly is a city that never sleeps.

London is a bustling city to live in. There is ALWAYS something going on. But!- it's not cheap. Cost of public transport and living costs are astronomical. I love the diversity of people and opportunities to improve oneself. But everything has a cost. A high cost. So be prepared to live very cheaply. To be angry at public transport being delayed BUT mostly frequent. Lots of activities on offer, however often very expensive. I love the city, but it is definitely in a gentrification phase.

It’s London. What am I supposed to say? It’s a capital city in the developed world, they’re all pretty much alike - it’s expensive and filthy, but there’s a lot of interesting stuff in it.

London is great, but the cost of living is higher than people realise. However, you won’t get a ‘student experience’ because you have the whole of London to go out in.

I'm from the countryside so it's nice to have buses that run more than once every hour and a half. Bring headphones and prepare for traffic jams if you're crossing the city. It's also f****** expensive so stick to pubs qnd cafs close to uni.

Living costs aside, London is by far one of the most amazing cities in the world to live in! As large as it is, there is a ridiculous amount of areas to visit and places to explore, all of which have their own disinct feel. Beyond its beauty, the great nights out and the plethora of places to visit, London is home to an unparalleled public transport system in terms of convenience, safety and regularity. If you can afford the rather steep living costs, London is an absolutely brilliant city to live in!
