    Yeah... to an extent. Although I'm from London and wouldn't have minded going to a London uni, moving out and all the rest of it. Only problem was it was too damn expensive!!

    Tell me about it ... only reason I didn't apply to LSE, UCL or KCL!! Their halls are living expenses in subsequent years are horrendous, extra loan doesn't come close to covering it.

    London... cheap?! I hope you're having a laugh!! Coming up to Nottingham was a godsend to me, I could have a night out and not have to spend £50/60 on the night and another £10 on a cab ride home! Living costs are very expensive in London, you're looking at paying at least £100/wk rent, whereas here you're looking £50-80 max!

    Well the london unis charge like 9k in hall fees in first year, to make up for the fact taht they can't charge as much tuition as they want ... do the maths, that isn't even covered by the blown up loan.

    That's a bit of an exaggeration. Take a look at this and see yourself:
    http://www.kcl.ac.uk/about/structure...dencefees.html
    http://www.lse.ac.uk/accommodation/fees/list_LSE.htm
    http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-stu...sidences/fees/

    UoN fees are roughly the same.

    another £10 on a cab ride home
    It costs exactly the same in Nottingham...

    Do you mean you've never paid £6 in Notts, or London? £6-7 is the most I've paid on a taxi (and it's usually split between 5/6 people).
