4.  How much money you need to move to UK

United Kingdom is an expensive country. Especially London. Do not arrive to London if you are not sure it is possible for you to survive there. The best way is to have money for month or two (1500-2000 pounds per month) and start searching for work at once since you appear in United Kingdom. The largest UK cities are not good for start as they are also the most expensive, and the work market competition there is harder to win. Often when people want to go to UK, they even do not know what town to choose, what to do etc. As a result, they go to London, quickly spend all their money, search for work for more time than they imagined and understand that the situation comes to be more serious than they thought it would be. Be careful, make a plan. In some way, it is less interesting to find out how to move to UK than how to live there.
