So just completed AS levels, looking to apply to universities.. Would really like to study at a university in London but London's notorious for being a really expensive place to live.. Coming from Birmingham, would I pretty much be broke within the first week or can I work my way around it?

Coming from Birmingham, I think you will be fine. You won't have to worry about exchange rates because you are already British.

You won't be broke within the first week if you manage your money well. There are thousands of students from all over the world studying in London, and they are surviving somehow.

If you think that the move would be worth the investment, then by all means do it. You only have one life to live. If the university in London is a university that can give you the best chance at succeeding at what you want to do, by all means go for it. But if you can succeed somewhere else, and you don't think London would be a great investment, then look elsewhere because London is expensive.
