    Is it that you have no money at all?

    Read into this in the first instance: http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Educatio...es/DG_10035218

    The university you apply to might also be able to offer you financial help in the form of bursaries - look on their websites to see if such help is available.

    You don't need to pay tuition fees upfront. You can get a tuition fee loan from UK student finance because Greece is in the EU-and this doesn't need to be paid back until after you've finished your degree and you're earning more than £15000.

    Around that, yes. This is a good estimate if you want to not have to worry about your finances whilst studying. It'll be enough to allow you to live without particularly strict budgeting, which I'm sure you'll want as an 'international student' - though you'll get a loan to cover your tuition fees.

    Ah, no, definitely don't lie/deceive. Such behaviour WILL get found out, and the consequences will be terrible.

    You'll need to cover tuition fees yourself, too, then.

    You can get an idea of London student accommodation prices here.

    Assuming you went for accommodation of £200 a week, you'd be spending £9,000 on accomodation alone for 45 weeks.

    Food/social/course costs, on average, might be £30-40 a week. Another £2,000, almost.

    Say, £11,000 over 45 weeks, for accommodation and living costs?
