Doing my MA at central saint martins, I have been doing a 1 hour 30 min commute from west sussex. Last year it worked out cheaper, being £320 a month (since I paid my parents at the time no rent it worked out cheaper then living in london.)
Yet now with train fair increase, I am paying £360 a month, and £40 rent (sure its not much rent.) So my living costs are now £400 a month.
If I get a room for £150 I could live in london for just under £300, which would make it far cheaper to live in london.
But I have just gotten a new job with homebase to make extra money to pay for studies, and cant even think of a branch transfer till I have done my three month introduction perioid.
So I need to find a new job, or wait three months. Though since everyone is going back to uni, finding a job in london with the hours I need will be quite difficult.

Apply for a new job in London with nothing to lose. If you are successful then look at moving.

Lookign for a job is the best idea, though you should also look at what train passes you can get because £320 is extorcianate, it could work out cheaper to get a London Metro pass (probably around £70 per month plus the same for Sussex).
