I've put this second choice on my UCAS application, behind the Edinburgh College Of Art.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me about it's surroundings and how nice a place it is? I imagine living in London will be hugely expensive?

Cheers in advance.

    St Martins is considered one of the best places in london to do art, i assume you're doing a foundation course? Yes, it will be expensive to live in london, but you get a london weighting for your loan. I don't know much about the surroundings, but i know that it probably doesn't matter - it's really easy to get around if you're living near there, so if you want to go out etc, you're spoiled for choice as the tube and busses make it so easy :)

    As the name suggests it's right in the centre of London, so yeah it will be a bloody expensive place to live!

    Well done if you get in though!! Just out of interest, what other Uni's did you apply to?

    You can live quite cheaply in London but only if you aim for theplaces outside the central tube zones. I lived just outside zone 3 for under £50 a week (Just outside Kilburn).

    The problem then is that you will have to pay tube fares, though I discovered that sometimes its quicker to walk and certainly easy to bike it.

    Are you trying to rile people?

    Cheers for the responses.

    I've applied to the place, yeah, but it's listed as a second choice which I recently heard they strongly dislike. If I'm fortunate enough to be accepted into Edinburgh (fingers crossed!) then I'll study the foundation year there and perhaps progress to Saint Martins for the three year degree afterwards.
