Okay,

I got Unconditional Offers from Exeter, Southampton, Manchester, Leicester, Warwick and Birmingham for law.

Hmm.. How is the cost of living in these universities? I know they are much much lower than London.

Thanks in advance.

Southampton
is my hometown.. much lower than london. but going out in general etc. seems fairly on a par with Oxford - which apparently is the next most expensive after London.

so the whole 'Southern' thing might push prices up.
but likewise - any part time job you'll perhaps earn more than at your other choices.

no idea about rents there, i'm afraid! but transport may also be an issue as AFAIK most university departments are away from the halls, which again are away from the centre of town.

PQ will probably have more hard facts for you though!

& hopefully finances aren't your main concern about wear to pick - because outside london i think everywhere's do-able with some budgeting & holiday employment!

Exeter is an expensive place to be. This is mainly due to accommodation price: an utterly crap self catering place costs £55, whereas another uni could charge that for a decent place. The best self catered is £75/85, the worst catered £97 and the best catered £115

Soton accommodation is very reasonable, the website is www.accommodation.soton.ac.uk

Prices are generally cheaper than London but not as cheap as living up north obviously.

I am at Plymouth but expect it is similar to Exeter.....halls range from £45 (don't do it!) to £90 a week. I am currently spending about £6-7k a year which is waaaaaay over budget!!!! :eek:

Southern places tend to be more expensive than places up north.
