Personal spending habits
London is very expensive. Prepared food/restaurants are more expensive than the U.S. but I compensated by learning how to cook! Accommodation, private or University, was comparable to U.S. University housing but not U.S. apartment living. Nightlife, including restaurants clubs or bars and transport to get home, is disgustingly more. Travel is a tricky one. I've spent more on travel here but that's because it costs so much less to fly from London to Europe than from the U.S.
