London is an expensive city as a student, however the opportunities for work and experience is probably the best you will get in the UK.

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!

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.

Not really possible to review London. It’s a large, populous capital city of a developed country and features all the things one would expect of same.

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!
