The real cost of living in London


Villy J.D.

Hi!
Next year I am doing my LL.M at UCL... I am currently budgeting but I'm having a hard time doing so 'cause I don't know what is the real cost of living in London!!!
Could any one please help me with how much should I expect to spend on:
1. a decent meal (lunch/dinner)?
2. one night out to a local pub (entertainment)?
3. books and copies?

Thanks!

Don't know if helps, but Time Out does a student guide to London, which is available on its website. It might give you an idea of prices.

It's impossible to answer this really as everyone has different living standards - it depends if you want to rough it or not.
As a v. rough estimate:
1. 10-15 pounds at an average restaurant (unless you go for a fastfood option 3-5 pounds, or 3-5 in a uni canteen).
2. 20 pounds - at least.
3. This can be huge. Uni's are a real rip-off on the photocoying front. For core texts, factor in about 500 pounds for the whole year.

I would say give yourself a 100/150 a week for expenses (exc. rent).

Unless you desperately want to go to London for a specialised course - it's best to go to somewhere outside London you'll have a much nicer time.
