Definitely a pressure cooker......medicines(damn expensive here) but dont worry about seeing a doctor and getting prescriptions as u'll register with the NHS immediately when u arrive which gives u free medical treatment to students in almost all cases. Even for xray and emergency care once for me i didnt even have to pay a penny.. Get all personal care products from india as they are also damn expensive here.....for eg: a tube of toothpaste is about £4...i.e 280-320 Rs, good shampo is about £6-7. If u smoke do get as many cartons as u can...buy from duty free in india...a pack can cost between £4-10....i.e starts at bout Rs280-320 Rs for a pac of cig.... notebooks and stationary. . are also expensive so get from home....but shoes, clothes etc are about the same price unless to go for big brands so dont bother bringing a lot....but it'll be really cold by the time u arrive so bring warm clothes and most imp a sturdy umbrella as it always rain intermittently. . . cant think bout nothin else now..

@toohtooh, I'm from ILS.

There is this website called all-unied.com and they provide cutlery, bedding etc. Any idea if thats any good?
A regular pack with about 63 items is £95.

Is that economical/decent/expensive?

How did you manage food? I hear buying food/ eating out is a bomb! :(

If you are looking for places to stay or things to buy at the best price, it is always good to have as many options as possible. As you say, things in here are so damn expensive sometimes, compared with the pricing of other countries. Tell you what, why don't you try http://www.adoos.co.uk ? Here you can find not only flats and roomates but also a whole lot of stuff that you may need. Give it a try
