Even if I am is it worth jus getting myself into more debt than uni would already incur ?

If you want to go to London so badly then yes it is worth it. University 'debt' is not the same as a normal loan. Unless you earn a lot in the future, you will hardly notice it, and if you do earn a lot then it won't matter to you anyway.

'London' does not guarantee you either a great career or lifelong happiness.
Its expensive and you'll spend more money/time on transport than almost anywhere else.

Go to Bristol - great Uni city with lots to do. And you can walk to Uni.

People who earn below 25K don't have to pay it back at all, but even if you earn more than that, depending on the exact income, you don't necessarily have to pay a lot, which is why I said for a lot of people it is more like a very faint tax.

But regardless, it seems as though you've answered your own question. You say that you want to go to university in London but that you don't think it's worth the money. Don't go then, simple as that. Only you can decide if it's worth what it costs.

Well if you want to invest your student loan then you won't be able to in London. Go to visit the universities in London and speak to the students there, and you will be able to find out some more things. Personally I value having a good time over money, so I would pick London if I were you, but it's understandable if you wouldn't do the same.
