Things were more expensive than they are in Germany especially housing as well as food and toiletries. Besides I wanted to travel a little bit to get to know the country and therefore spend some money on train tickets, hotels, rental cars etc.

There was a fruit and vegetable as well as book market on campus where one could save some money. There is a Lidl and Aldi supermarket in Feltham which is a lot cheaper than Tesco, Waitrose etc. I had a few jobs on campus doing tests for the Business Department where you were paid right away. They usually paid very well and one could earn some extra money.

England is very expensive! Especially in county of Surrey (where the school is). The exchange rate was 2.3 canadian dollars to 1 pound when I was there; this certainly didn't help things. It was worth the money though.

Before going I knew it was going to be expensive... just be prepared to spend a lot on just about everything. It is fairly easy to get a job on campus if you need to make extra money, I worked at the Student's Union bar which helped me out quite a bit.

Well, you can't really expect to save when going to London. The worst thing is the transport. If you do not have many classes throughout the week, better choose accomodation in London, even though you'll miss out on student life a little. It's just that you're likely to experience more in the capital than in the village of Egham, Surrey.

Not really, but students can get a Young Person Railcard to get discounts, and the NUS (National Union of Student)card is very useful to get discounts in various places, including in museums and clubs.
