When you first arrive in the UK, we suggest you stay in budget-friendly accommodation, such as a youth hostel, hotel or B&B. When you recover from jetlag, you can arrange to find share accommodation, an apartment or a flat.
Make sure to look for places near public transport, and not more than 30 minutes away from your school.
When you’re looking for accommodation, remember to take your time. Don’t just pick the first place, make a decision that you’re happy with. Consider if you can share with a friend to split costs, or see if you can find somewhere with all inclusive rent.
Don’t choose somewhere out of your budget. Aim to pay between £80-£120 per week, depending on what type of accommodation you decide on.
You can find share houses on Gumtree, EasyRommate, Spareroom.com and HousePals.
