As a postgraduate, finding the right accommodation is incredibly important; comfort, accessibility and strong WiFi are all essential aspects to consider. Asking the right questions will help you narrow down what will work best for you. Where’s the nearest library? How long will it take me to get on campus? Is there a Nando’s nearby?
Finding student accomodation can be tricky. Where do you need to be in the city? Rents get cheaper as you get further away from the centre, but then your transport costs go up. So you would need to factor in these extra costs on top of rent. London is a fairly accessible city, easy to get around by public transport. Maybe not as bicycle or pedestrian friendly as some European cities, but the tube, buses are pretty ok. Budget of course is probably always the deciding factor, and this is difficult in an expensive city like London. Flat sharing is always an option for students and fairly common across the city. I personally would check out coliving london some companies have shared flats, others have studios, 1 bedroom flats. They usually have properties in a variety of locations, so rents can vary and in some areas be quite reasonable. Plus they tend to all be fully furnished, no need to stress about buying and finding furniture. And rents include bills and wifi, so also you don’t have to mess about with setting those up and paying them each month, Just pay the rent!
