Living in London is quite expensive, but there are enough cheaper places to eat around Guys campus which do really good food and often give student deals, likewise for drinks places. Part time work is available at the SU or through Kings itself, and there are many bars and pubs locally that would employ students. Transport prices follow the TFL pricing system and is pretty reasonably prices, especially buses, but it is also easy to cycle. Most societies have additional costs, and then some ask you to pay for kit/ match fees etc but its generally pretty reasonable. No additional course costs for medicine specifically other than travel to clinics and GP placements, but people on other courses had to pay to print course notes.×

Waterloo library has been done and is very nice, however still lacks adequate amounts of computers for everyone during busy times such as when doing dissertations Food court at waterloo is poor with little food and quite expensive×

Having a railcard really makes things a lot cheaper. I'm not really sure how good for value the food and drink on campus is, but we have a sainsburys nearby that does meal deals. Lots of take aways nearby so lots of choice. The best thing is that you don't have to buy course books yourself , i have just used the books available in the library which cover all those on the reading list and more, saving me money. If i particularly like a book, i can then buy it, knowing it's true value having properly used it before.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
