Accommodation and living costs

London is the most expensive city to live in as a student and rents can often be double the price you would pay elsewhere in the UK. Students tend to live in shared houses or flats or dedicated halls of residence. Expect to pay around £400-£500 a month for a room in a shared flat.

As London is such a large city, it pays to try and live as close as possible to where you will be studying. With so much competition for flats, finding somewhere to live in London can be an extremely stressful and cut-throat business. Make sure you do plenty of research on where you want to live before taking the plunge.
