    im debating whether to go to london to uni or not because of the price and whether i can cope financially
    ive applied for student finance and im entitled to the maximum amounts Maintenance Grant of £3,354.00 and Maintenance Loan of £5,998.00, a total of £9,352.00 for the year. Im also eligible for £3500 bursary from the uni
    So is a total of £12,852 enough for a 1st year student living in self catered halls at UCL?

    I had about £4k less than you and accomodation of £192 a week and managed just fine, so you'll be alright, it's good because you'll need that money for a gym membership and protein powder and creatine haha
