For a degree course you will be thinking from £9000 up + maintenance money of £7200(outside London) or £9000(London)

Dont know about those places.but if you looking for a city which is not too expensive to stay,i would stay Portsmouth. i studied there and i still stay there.its cheaper to live than london and you can get some part time jobs to survive here easily than London.

Its, is about 1hr 30mins by train or coach, sometimes longer depends on the traffic.

Post-graduate will cost you from 2million up for fees alone, maintenance money not included. Not only in London but any city in the UK.

Not like Oxford, Cambridge etal O!
Though nothing bad in aiming for 'em [na 1 headed humans like us dey there na] only that entry & admission requirements, fees etc will be something else
Yet there's no biggie aiming for the top 20-30/40 in your chosen field of study cool cool cool cool

1) Newcastle; cool city, reasonably priced flats , especially if you rent a whole house with friends and share the bills, in areas where student population is high, the prices are a bit steep, the social life is decent very affordable night outs, cool calm town, just dont get drunk too often. Trains to London are expensive so you must book well in advance!

2) Liverpool; Me na kno!


3) London; You already know, you're most likely to get carried away chasing paper here. If you wanna study in London, you need to settle down quickly and focus!


4) Oxford; Large student population with 2 universities and several colleges, things are surprisingly expensive, Accommodation can be pretty expensive, cos most decent one are close to universities, the rest you will need to get buses, but its very cycle friendly smiley Neat city, very vibrant social scene loads of studenty things to do, it would help if you don't restrict yourself to only Nigerian crowd to enjoy the city; as there just a growing nigerian/african population hence very little activities targeted at them. Coach to London is cheap and frequent

Yep!
Also London [Queen mary] and Liverpool [but them dey form embarassed embarassed]are in that range.


@ Dis Guy, will comment on yours too.
