Living in London is amazing. There are so many opportunities and such an incredible atmosphere, however it is a massive burden of cost. Having been at uni for 3 years now (still 3 more to go…) I have a 3 TOP TIPS on how to save money living as a student in London (especially in South Kensington…so expensive)
1-Travel: Make sure you have signed up for your student oyster and linked it with your railcard to save 1/3 on travel! https://tfl.gov.uk/fares-and-payments/adult-discounts-and-concessions/railcards
2- Social: Make sure you sign up to the Times Student. It has saved so many of here at Imperial. You can sign up to the Times Student Scheme for £20 for the year.
