Studying in London as an International Student

Studying in London as an international student is an exciting place to be! If you’re coming here for your degree, or even just for a few months as part of it, this guide will give you a few pointers on how to get the most out of your time in the city. Plan your budget Spend some time planning out your budget before you arrive, considering how long you’ll be staying. You need to make sure all the essentials are covered whilst having a bit of spending money on the side for enjoying everything the city has to offer. Yes, London can be an expensive place to live – but there is also a lot of great stuff to do for free. Here are a few of our budgeting tips: It’s a good idea to keep a monthly budget. That way, you can keep on top of your spending as you go. Try to keep separate spending ‘pots’ – i.e. groceries might be £X per month, so you can allow £X for social drinks per month.  And when cash does start to run low towards the end of the month, make use of everything London has to offer for free. Apart from free museums like the Tate Modern, the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Museum of Natural History, there are world-famous landmarks like Buckingham Palace to see. There are tons of free things to do in London.  It’s a good idea to open a UK bank account before you get here. There are lots of options for international students.  And, always make sure you have some accessible funds available in case of emergencies. Finding accommodation If you’re finding your own accommodation for your time in London, it’s useful to know that rental contracts here (and all over the UK) tend to be for 6, 9 or 12 months. If you’re only in the UK for a few months, it can be a little trickier, but there are short-term rentals out there which give you the flexibility of having your own place without having to commit to something more long-term. If you’re only here for a couple of months, you could also look at travel hosting websites like Airbnb, but just bear in mind this might be a less cost-effective option. Getting around London Here are a few apps that most Londoners use regularly to make getting around the city
