    I've just started my A levels and I have decided on studying in London as it's my favourite location than place such as in the Midlands etc. I want to do a degree in either law or marketing. I will live in London for the 3/4 years, is it expensive? Halls or private accommodation? I want to be in Central London so i was looking at universities such as the University of Westminster, City University London etc, are they good? I don't think I can be in a Russel group university, I think i will get ABB or AAB or BBB as my a levels. Another thing I want to know is what is the average cost of living, food etc and the cost of eating out and night clubs.

    It is probably the most expensive choice you could make. Amazing city but yes notoriously very expensive.

    Cost of food and leisure: approx £80 a week, more if you're dining out often and/or clubbing frequently
    Rent: £400 a month for a room in a house share is more or less a decent price, in central you'd be looking at more - if you're on campus then it depends on your uni

    Clubs in central london usually have entry of about £10-15, drinks small wine: £6, spirit + mixer: £6, cloakroom £3, cab (depends)
    Some clubs have ladies free before 11pm but an average night out, start > finish would be about £30 minimum
    Eating out...what do you like? fancy a cheeky nandos? you're looking at about £12 for a decent meal lol
    A travelcard for tube/bus/tram = £130 a month

    If you study in London though, get a job, waitressing gets about £7ph + tips and was enough for me to keep myself alive. Retail is about £7ph + OT and was also enough for me.

    All in all, you'll have an amazing time, the city is very busy and multi-cultural, you'll meet so many people from all over and you're never too far from anything, it's a great place to study and there are a lot of discounts for students in shops, clubs and travel.

    Hope this helps
