Try to thing of one £ as 12 NOK, then some things will not look as cheap as you might think. Compared to Norway the prices are pretty much the same.

Marketing Information Analysis with Dr. Palihawadana at Leeds Business School. Excellent teacher which is really admitted to give the students a positive experience of statistics. Also European Business Strategy with Mr. R. John at South Bank University was very good.

Final comments
It would be an advantage if you went there before school starts and spend some time at finding a good accomodation, either private or at campus. A lot easier when you arrive with a lot of luggage. Contact the student union, they will help you.

Personal comments
As a Norwegian we felt more relaxed at a place called Walkabout. A typical party place where people are stressed off and relaxed in their behavior. A place to meet people from different nationalities.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
Because it force you to live an everyday life, where you have to visit the supermarket and sign up for different agreements e.g. regarding electricity and heating. You will need to make a bigger effort in trying to settle doww, which will give you some good experience and understanding of things work.
