I really need help deciding my firm university. It's between Oxford and UCL - I know a lot of people will think it's a stupid decision to even be considering rejecting Oxford, but I absolutely love London as a place, and much prefer the course at UCL. I'd be applying for Human Sciences, and this is much more biological/sciencey at UCL, which is what I wanted, compared to Oxford which focuses more on the biological side.
My main reason for not choosing UCL is that I'm worried about the finance. I know you can get extra money from the university but I'd get a similar amount from Oxford in bursaries, and obviously the money would go much further in Oxford than London. I live 45 minutes from London but really don't want to have to live and home or commute in.
Can anyone please give me a realistic idea of how much it costs per year to live in London, and the standards of the affordable university accommodation? Plus any extra information about the university itself/life in London would be useful thanks!
...or just paranoid?
