    £900/Month???!!!

    Do you mean including rent? I hope so.... Who on Earth (Student) can afford to pay so much a month (if you do mean without accomodation)!?

    yes...on average 10 pounds a day for simple food and supplies. Which indeed counts up to around 500 pound a month.

    Expenditure varies depending on personal preference.....There are many big spenders at the LSE. I regard myself as being quite a good money manager, and Id probably have spent on average 700 a month.....but then i shared a room for 50 quid a week!...

    I know of people who spend less than 700 quid a month, accommodation included. In fact, I know of one who spends only slightly over 600 quid a month. Yes, including accommodation. I still think LSE's estimate of 1000 a month is a tad excessive.

    4x70=280 (food, parties)
    4x86=344 (accomodation
    ------------------------+
    =624

    I usually spend somewhat less, somewhat above 500 pounds. I forgot to tell that it included accomodation fee...sorry.

    I have my oysters, but mainly travel by Bus. I only shop at Surrey Quays Tesco Megastore or Lidl, both of which have huge discounts. I usually cook for myself, for three days at a time (the rest I safe in tupperware). Butlers Wharf is one of the cheapest halls. When I go out, I usually frequent house-parties, birthday parties etc. Everything for free, and they tend to be more fun as well Hehe...I suppose I really AM Dutch :P

    bankside is expensive. i'll be spending 440 per month on accomodation alone.
    is it a good idea to get a monthly travelcard that includes everything? wouldn't a bus one be good enough?

    Either way, make sure you apply for a Student Discount Travel Pass.

    I think you save 20% (or more) which is great.
