Consult a league table if you are worried about University reputation. However, make sure the course feels right for you.
Living in or around London will be expensive as an international student. Look at the Kingston web site as I'm sure they will estimate expenses. They probably would not have estimated for having a maid though!
I went to see Happy-Go-Lucky last night. You're very right it was great to see someone so cheerful in a movie! It took a while until I understood why they put in the scene with the tramp under the bridge though. I guess Poppy gets grounded to earth when she meets people that don't have such a happy-go-lucky life.
It's not really a great solution, but why not take the funded studentship at City for a while, and treat it as a trial. Then after 6 months, if its not working out, contact Oxford again and explain the situation. As its self-funded, they may still want to take you on.
PS I think City is pretty good for AI and CS in general.
Just for reassurance one friend of mine did his first degree in English, followed by a Masters in Politics. He was then given funding to do a PhD in Politics. He said it wasn't too hard catching-up with others, as the nature of his MA did not presume tremendous amounts of political theories etc. Make sure you do some background reading anyway.
If the topic doesn't exist there, try widening your research area, or widening the scope of the search to universities near Copenhagen.
It may also be worth also emailing a Computer Science department in Copenhagen for further advice?
I don't know if its exactly the same at all universities. At my own uni, the pre-masters program was a three month academic English writing course for people that did not get a good enough mark in TOEFL or English exams. It might be worth checking with each specific university though.
