Wages can be high here but also the cost of transport, food and living costs can easily eat away at your budget - try to save money before departing. The minimum wage of the UK is around £9.00 but what you get paid really depends on the job.

Cost of Living
London is one of the most expensive cities in the world to work, prices for somewhere to stay, food and transport are very high compared to the rest of the UK and most of mainland Europe. Generally you will need at least £1000 a month to cover rent, food, getting around and also going out. A one bedroom flat costs around £1200 - £3000 per month in rent, so you are best looking for a temporary flatshare (usually around £400 - £1000 per month) or roomshare (£250 - £500 per month). The costs of getting around on the tube is around £120 per month whilst a bus pass costs around £80 per month.

If you need accommodation during your stay some agencies can provide this for you for an extra fee. There are options like homestays, private accommodation or shared housing. This service is available for both UK nationals and overseas citizens. If you are looking to arrange an internship independently and you have nowhere to stay you might want to check websites like the Gumtree, Moveflat, Rightmove or Zoopla which have a selection of short term shared and private rentals available.
