    It'll be bloody expensive. Obviously you'll be classed as an international student so your fees alone would be upwards of £15k a year, but living costs in the south, especially London, are crazy expensive. You will also be ineligible for all forms of Student Finance so you will have to self fund and pay everything up front. It may be worth looking at unis up north which will have cheaper living costs
