Matt is right, carefully check the fee scheme - especially nowadays that they've gone up as 9K a year for "Home" student. 

Though, I can tell you from my own experience, Home students include both UK and EU citizens - so if you come from an EU country, then you should get to pay the same fees as a UK student. Students from countries outside the EU get to pay much higher fees, in the order of 2x. 

Also, fees are different from uni to uni, so check beforehand what deal you would get with your prospective college(s).

- if you are not a UK citizen, look very carefully at the 'foreign student' fee structure. They can be five times the UK one.
- look at the university's commitment to academic-commercial bridges. Birkbeck, QMUL, UCL, City, OU, Cambridge, Oxford, among many others, have such opportunities to help you get involved in research that has a potential commercial use. Look at the type of research they specialise in, and see if it is something you are interested in. If so, and you're prepared to put in even more time, you can get involved early, and it will add a very specialist edge to your CV
