    I am going to study at the university in London this September. Currently, I am searching for the accommodation and planing a budget. Apart from the accommodation which will be paid by my sponsor, I wonder whether it is possible to live a decent life with £30 a day in London.

    So that's £210 a week giving you £840 a month...
    hmm so you're not paying rent so that's a big factor of your costs gone..I'd say it'll be tight but doable...
    You'll need to pay for travel/food/bills (maybe depends if your sponsor is paying)/course books/going out

    But it also depends how much your sponsor is prepared to spend, it'll get more expensive for them the closer to central you go

    Define 'Decent' in your thread title. Decent to one person is squalor to another.

    £30 a day is a lot but it depends on what you're budgeting for. I don't spend any money on a day to day basis as I make lunches at home and have a travel card. Accommodation and travel are your biggest costs so you should be fine.
