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.

North London Student Life
As a student in London, you can expect everything to be on a large scale. With a transport network that connects you to everywhere you want to go, and with more to see and do around London than you can ever squeeze into 3 or 4 years, your options for shopping, nightlife and trips and meals out are endless.
Cost of Living
Obviously London is super expensive but is definitely manageable on a student budget if you know where to cut costs

London is highly connected through very regular services on the underground, bus and overground rail networks. If using a bike to get around isn’t an option for you, we highly recommend getting a 18+ student Oyster card which will shave a bit off your (pretty hefty) transport bill.

Explore London away from the noise and busy streets by wandering along the 9-mile-long Regent’s Canal. It stretches from Little Venice all the way to the Thames and is a perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon, with so many cafes and pubs to tempt you along your way.
Delve into the exhibits and archives of the museum at the Royal Academy of music to see some very old instruments, or pop in when they have a free public lecture or event. You’ll find RAM in between Baker Street and Regent’s Park tube stations.
