Hi

Thank you for your reply but I was looking for more of a book which looks at all aspects of student life including things like being independent and living away from home and managing finances. But thank you.

You won't find a useful book, I'd recommend avoiding most them as they tend to waffle about and not get straight to the point. There are numerous of guides online that you can use for free, including here (which new content is always being made each year). You should break down what you want to know in particular, and use search engine to find forums and articles with helpful advise(for example this useful article).


In terms of living independently, its a matter of just experiencing it and tackling each problems as you stumble upon them, which then you'll gradually get used to it.

"Degree Course Offers" by Brian Heap? It gives a brief overview of all the Unis, and shows their position in the Times/Sunday Times league table by uni and subject as well as having chapters on factors you need to consider like the cost of studying in different cities, fees and student finance
