Competing funding offers: How do they work?

Despite being an assistant professor, I do not understand the logistics of graduate students playing competing funding offers against each other. I know it happens but what is "the right thing to say"? A good friend asked me about this and I realized I was not so savvy as a grad student. What does one say? Whom does one ask? Does this really work? Is it worth trying?

Please share your general London tips.

I'm moving to London in a few weeks to attend a graduate program [UL's SOAS]. I am leaving my long term boyfriend and many friends in Vermont for 9 months to attend classes. I've already lined up a part time tutoring gig and my housing is covered through the university. I don't have anything specific to ask, just general advice about being an American late 20-something non-single student in London. [I've lived in second world countries before for extended periods of time, general travel won't be too helpful.] Money is a concern, but not an obstacle.
