Basically it takes £ 850-1000/mois to be a bit wide. Housing is very expensive, but we also think transportation, food, daily life, travel can be a little more frequent ... to return to France, telephone communications ...

Regarding the budget in London, you will find below an example (this is an indication, although this varies depending on circumstances and individuals:
- £ 400/month (roughly cel £ 13/jour was in hostel ... or roommate)
- £ 75 for zones 1-2 travelcard for a month (it can start any day of the month)
- £ 30 for telephone communications
The rest to feed Ituri (about £ 8/day), detergents, various small purchases, a glass here and there ...

So plan to go with good savings ... under penalty of being forced to abandon the adventure hastily even before managed to find a job ...
