For placement year I would love to apply to undergraduate schemes at places like Disney and Warner Bros in London.

Thing is, I don't get a lot of student finance, and have no help from my parents either, and I'm worrying about how I'm going to afford living in London if I (miraculously) get a placement position there.

I understand I'd get paid around 15k-18k for the year, and I've got about 3k worth of savings, but I don't know if this is enough - I've been to London once, I am utterly clueless!

So to any students living in London, either at university or on placement, how difficult is it to afford everything, from accommodation to travel etc etc.

Any help would really be appreciated!!

I mean it's liveable but you'd be in a shared house probably in zone 2 or 3 and wouldn't have alot left over..

With 15-18k it would certainly be possible, although you would still be living like a student. Rent is typically £600-£800 for a room so £7200-£9600 a year.
