After food and rent, I will be left with ~£50 a week to spend.
How should I ration this out? How much should I put aside to save/ spend on booze/ spend on clothes?
How do you reccomend I budget this amount? Watch

Well pre-drinks will definitely save you money on booze if you're willing to pitch in with any friends you make. Give yourself a maximum amount of money you can withdraw while you're out. It's dependent on how often you intend to go out as well, if you're not intending to go out a lot you may feel more comfortable spending slightly more when you do.
I'd say save £20 a week if you can afford it. That's quite a lot of money and will accumulate quickly. That money saved can then be used when you need new clothes as well. I don't see why there needs to be a weekly budget for that?
I'm also a fresher so, I don't have any experience budgeting for myself, but that's my take on it.
