Actually there usually is a London allowance on top of the normal stipend for studentships at London institutions. I'm hoping to get one myself, and while it won't be a huge amount (somewhere from 15,500-17,500 depending on where the funding comes from) I think it should be enough for me to manage on for 3 or 4 years without going into debt. I guess it depends where you will be living/studying, as housing and travel costs will be the main thing.
yep you usually get an extra £2k on top of the normal stipend because London is so miserable.
It's difficult to compare, as I've only ever been a PhD student in London.
But AFAIK most research councils offer a bit extra (~£2k pa) to PhD students in London. This might not be flagged up as ***London Weighting*** on a studentship advertisment, but if you look at a research council website you might be able to find the details.
