It's very similar to the COLI if you live right near a major city in the USA such as NYC, San Fran. or L.A.

If you live in the middle of nowhere, you should probably double what your current COLI is to get an idea of what it is like here.

Make sure all your paperwork i.e. student visa, loans, etc. is complete. Try and set up a bank account with HSBC in the states if you have one. It'll make ATM usage so much easier. You'll have to open up a British account anyway. Also, bring with you all the clothes you need cause stuff here is expensive. Bring lots of voltage converters and American medicine (Tylenol, Advil, Robitussin). British medicine sucks.
