We suggest you stay in a youth hostel, hotel or B&B, depending on your budget when you first arrive. Once you have recovered from jet lag you can set up appointments to view share houses, apartments or flats.
Always keep transport in mind – it is best to find somewhere near the tube, train or bus line that is no more than 30 minutes from your school.
Shop around and make sure you are happy with the decision you make. Consider flats you can share with another person or two, or an apartment will all inclusive rent (internet, power, heating and water rates).
Aim to pay between £80-£120 per week.
Gumtree, Easy Roommate, spareroom.com, housepals are some websites worth checking out.
Transport for London will help you plan your journey between work and your accommodation. Remember to buy an Oyster Card when you arrive to save on travel costs.
