I'm going to Europe in about 5 to 6 weeks and about to purchase the airline ticket. Problem is, I dont know when I will be coming back nor where I will be when I return.

I will be purchasing my ticket through studentuniverse.com as a one-way ticket going into London. Should I be worried about having any issues with customs in England since I dont have a return flight booked yet?
I was thinking about doing a round-the-world ticket or just buying a round trip ticket and later postponing (or just plain cancelling) my return flight but I would like to look at the cheapest option. My departure date is anytime during the last two weeks of May and I am actually willing to fly into any major European city. London just happens to be the most inexpensive (to fly into) and seems like as good a place as any to start my backpacking trip. The cheapest ticket I found is around $225 flying out of New York going into London one way.
So any suggestions on purchasing this ticket given the above details? Is a one-way ticket my best option and what should I do to ensure I dont have any problems going through immigration? Your advice is greatly appreciated!
