The cost of living in the United Kingdom, and specially in London is three times higher than in Spain. Accomodation was the most expensive (four/five times higher) followed by nightlife and food. We did not get out of London much due to this fact but we organized ourselves to enjoy it anyways to the maximum!

The best thing to do is to send boxes with some elementary food from your home country through the cheapest transport agency. The cheapest supermarkets are Safeway, Sainsbury's and Tesco (make sure you have one near your apartment!). For bus and subway you can make a student card by sending a brochure stamped by your university, it takes two/three weeks to receive it but you save lots of money. Try to get into the guest lists of the nightclubs it is less expensive. Go to notting hill market or spitalfields to buy appliances (such as a TV), you will get one by 10-35 pounds

London is one of the most expensive city in the world. If you have no money you cannot leave there. Life is twice or even three times as much expensive as in Paris.This is a true fact, so you need to deal with it anyway.Just to quote some, travel expenses cost around £60/month for a travel card zone 1 and 2, that is tree times higher than it is in Paris.Housing is £105/week in zone 2, that makes alot of expenses.
