Should I study medicine in London?Watch
I feel really drawn to London, Imperial College London, UCL and KCL are looking like my top 3 options right now based on the facilities, the feel of the area (especially), and the extra BSc degree all these unis offer. Ever since I set eyes on Imperial I could really see myself going there. I've looked at other unis, including Bristol, Exeter and Manchester, but these just don't call out to me as much at all. I also don't really like the idea of studying in Scotland. My parents are trying to steer me away because of the vast expenses of London (and although I'm aware that basic living costs are covered in student loan, rent after 1st year is extortionate (unless I'd house share, which I'm more than willing to do if I find the right people, and I'm not too picky, but also going out to get drinks or food is also going to be ridiculously expensive). Neither of my parents have been to uni. Should I reconsider London? I really want to go there.
