    I'm thinking of studying medicine in the UK in the future but I'm not exactly sure which places in the UK would be best for an international student.
    A lot of people say London uni's are great and I would apply to one but idk, in my opinion it's too expensive! (or are there many special discounts for students?)
    Also, which bigger or slightly bigger cities are the cheapest?

    London is the biggest city in the UK? Otherwise generally Northern cities are cheaper, like Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle. Although student accomodation is still often quite pricey. You also need to consider with medicine that it is insanely competitive especially for international students, and you need to apply according to your strengths as much as anything else.

    Pick a large city and you're golden, although in practice medicine is very competitive and you'll be lucky to get one offer so apply to the places you have the best chances at.
