Beginning your LLM in January is often a daunting experience when you're with students who have already settled into their course and their accommodation.
Making the most of your student accommodation will ensure that your start to your LLM and your move to your new home is as easy as it can be. Private accommodation providers Fresh Student Living aim to make settling in and starting your LLM course even easier. Here we take a look at what accommodation options are available, and what should you look out for in the perfect accommodation for LLM students?
Private Halls of Residence
Fresh Student Living is a private student accommodation provider in the UK and the perfect option for students starting an LLM course in January. All of their accommodation is viewable online and is all decorated in a comfortable, calm and modern way to ensure that students have a tranquil environment to study in. Along with cleaning staff to make sure you keep things tidy too. Your LLM is going to be a full-on year, so knowing that you won't be spending any time or money sorting out or cleaning up and having a guaranteed peaceful room to work in is ideal.
University Halls of Residence
Almost all universities offer halls of residence accommodation for their students, and you'll find that there will be some space allocated for students beginning courses in January. But, you need to get in super quick, as the rooms usually go fast especially those that are close to or on campus. Also you might want to make sure that your halls of residence are PG specific, as undergraduate accommodation maybe a bit too party central for postgrads.
Private Self-Catering Accommodation
This is another ideal option for LLM students as companies like Fresh Student Living organise all of the details of a house share. This means there is no arguing with your flatmates over unpaid bills keeping the atmosphere in your flat nice and calm. You also have the option of a one roomed flat with Fresh Student Living and giving all the benefits of your own space with the social activities arranged by the staff for you and your fellow residents.
University Self-Catering Accommodation
Another great option is your university provided self-catering halls of residence. Again, these can go quickly so if you want to stay there you need to let them know as soon as you can. Accommodation provided by your university – and by Fresh Student Living – will always have great transport links to the local campuses, but find out before hand where most of your lectures will be, then you'll be able to check your commute out for yourself in advance. Any extra information you can get before you start your LLM program is always a bonus when settling in.
Private House Shares
If you're travelling to a new town for your LLM, then this might not be the best choice as you'll want to check out what you are moving into before you arrive. When you're viewing houses make sure you check that your room has everything you'll need like a good study space. Fresh Student Living let you arrange a house share all online and all their accommodation is bookable online, as are most university's accommodation, so you'll be ready to go from the minute you arrive.
Renting a Single Room
This is another option that is best left to those who know the town well. With Fresh Student Living you can select to share a flat with people you don't know yet and your room will be allocated by Fresh Student Living. But, if you are from out of town and not using Fresh Student Living or your university's accommodation, you'll want to make a visit to check your accommodation before you rent to ensure you're going to a calm house in a quiet area so you can study in peace on your LLM.
