Can anyone tell me what it’s actually like to go to uni in London as someone from a pretty average background monetarily? My mam wouldn’t be able to help me out financially at all, would uni life in London be miserable/more stressful in this case? I’ve heard that most people have a lot of help from their parents/family as it’s so expensive and student loans don’t cover everything.

Not going to lie - London is a very expensive city, particularly in regard to things like second and third year accomodation. Lots of people who study there do have rich families (not everyone, of course).

Do you really want to study in London or are you interested in other unis too?

I got a scholarship for UCL, something worth looking into. The reality is many get part-time jobs or live far from uni in 2nd + year.

I've studied in London for the past 6 years now and wouldn't swap it for anywhere else (cheaper or not!)
