    Hi, just got an interview for St George's medicine course, and while I am excited, I was wondering whether it's actually feasible to live in London?

    I would get around £10700 a year from student finance, is this enough to live adequately in London, bearing in mind everything costs more there?

    Anyone with experience feel free to share it, I really don't know what to do :no:

    Any advice is appreciated, thanks in advance!

    In part, it depends on you and it depends on what part of London you live in. The university probably has a quote of how much, in their opinion, it will cost you. But, in my experience, it's hugely wrong and a lot of it depends on you. I studied in London for a year. Because I didn't go out every week, I saved money there, uni was within walking distance, etc. I lived on £80 a week (I lived in halls; so no bills) and usually had some £30-40 a week left over.
