    If its a pgce course then assuming you have above a 2:1, you d get the usual student finance and a government bursary on top so you should be able to afford rent or at least a studio somewhere.

    Two things here
    1) Many PGCErs moving away from home will opt for a house share with fellow PGCE or postgrad students for a quieter living environment.
    2) Whether you can afford a place just for you depends on how much finance you get. Student finance is the same as for undergrad- based on household income with the same rules. However there are teacher training bursaries https://getintoteaching.education.go...es-and-funding, some of which are a very good sum of money and would comfortably enable you to rent your own flat for a year outside London.
