To live in central london (ec1, ec2, nw1, w1), a studio flat or 1 bed apartment will cost up to about £700 per month and then add to that the cost of bills (elcetricity and gas ££50-£70), council tax £150, water rates up to £20-£30, phone £20, food £20-£40, TV licence £15. So basically £900-£1000 a month. Don’t forget of course other expenses eg travel to and from work, going to the pub, buying lunch at work etc. If you don’t live so central, you could take off up to £200 off the cost of living in central london. To get a job, u’re better off sending your cv to companies online cos nowadays, they don’t want to see u until they’ve had a look at ur cv. Good luck.

Help on applying to the University of London?

I am a junior in high school and am planning on applying to the University of London next year. I am having trouble finding on the website what exactly the qualifications are in order to apply. I also cannot find exact information on tuition fees or if international students are qualifying for accommodation. Any information on these subjects would be greatly appreciated!! :)

Administrator answers:

Firstly, the University of London is federal and each college is like a university in itself. “Head office” just validates and awards the actual degrees. It is the individual college web sites you need to be looking at. So pick a college that does the subject you want (some of them are quite specialised) and their web site will certainly have the international rate of tuition fees somewhere.

But all it will give on entry requirements is some idea of their typical offer in terms of what grades they require on English A levels (the exams we sit at 18). Note that A is the top grade and they go down to E. You would have to ask directly what they would expect of an American student. The only hint I can provide is that the University of London’s general entrance requirement for a BA/BSc degree is stated at http://www.londoninternational.ac.uk/how_to_apply/application_process/entrance_quals.pdf to be

“Advanced Placement (AP) Examinations of the American College Board, provided at least two full, non-overlapping, subjects are passed at grades 3, 4 or 5 (with the exception of Studio Art). Please note Microeconomics and Macroeconomics are valued as half a full subject each.”

This is an absolute minimum – for particular subjects, the college will have particular requirements in addition to this, and it will expect higher grades than that anyway because of the competition for places. The University of London is one of the more prestigious ones. I know AP exams are much more rigorous than the usual high school exams, but that’s what A levels are like – English students take two years to sit just 3 A levels, sometimes 4, so they are of a very high standard and you need to have reached that standard to be able even to start an English degree course.

It may be possible to apply before you have sat these and the college will give you a conditional offer. British students have to do this all the time – they apply before sitting A levels in May/June, get the results in August, then the university confirms the place or not and if not, they join in the mad scramble of Clearing to find if somewhere else will take them before term starts in October.

If the college has any accommodation at all, it is likely to be for the first year only, if that. International students are likely to get priority. Most students have to “live out” and share a rented flat (apartment) or house English university towns all have a thriving market in these and the college should have an accommodation office where you could find one. Accommodation in college for all three years only really exists at Oxford and Cambridge.

At the appropriate time you need to apply via UCAS http://www.ucas.ac.uk/ This was set up over 40 years ago so that you don’t have to fill in separate applications for every British university you want to try for – you only fill in one and put up to five choices of course on it.

Mandy asks…

Looking for resources for apartments in downtown Salem, OR not apartment complexes?

I am moving to Salem from Troy, NY this summer, and so far all I can find for apartments is apartment complexes. Would prefer not to live in an apartment complex if possible. I know Salem has a downtown area, but I can’t seem to find any resources for apartments downtown. Also, I would like to live near campus, but everything I’m finding is too far to walk. I have a small dog. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Betty asks…

Looking for low cost student apartments in London?

I am a student looking to transfer to a university out in London. Before I make my decision I wanted to learn a little information about London. I was wondering if anyone could answer where are good places to live in London for a student and where would be good places to look for apartments (flats). I am preferably looking for a low cost place to stay, for my student budget.
Looking for best value. Is a 1,000 pounds a month reasonable in a decent area in London? Any suggestions for certain towns to live in?

Administrator answers:

It’s impossible to say unless you tell us what you believe is ‘low cost’. Everything in London is expensive, there is no cheap student accommodation. A small studio flat in inner London can start at 250 quid a week, about 11,000 GBP a year.
