Dear Ashane, First and foremost, congratulations on getting selected to the London University, and am writing
letter as a response to the advice you have sought from me about accommodation
you are here. Beginning with accommodation, the place that I stayed was close to the Central
as well as
to the University.
place is located in a vibrant
called Magic
because all the restaurant chains, supermarkets, nightclubs, and public transportation are easily accessible.
, the security of
is regarded as one of the safest places in
country to live in
as a result
of very low crime rates. As far as your housing is concerned, the best way to find a place is to look for it once you land here.
, you could rent an apartment by making a reservation via Airbnb for a month, and once you are here, you could decide for yourself as to where you would prefer to stay. Despite the continuous advice provided to many of my colleagues, there were a few mistakes made by them when choosing the accommodation.
, many individuals opt for low-rent apartments which are far from the university.
, they finance their apartment through a mortgage loan from the bank. Both these decisions would increase the cost of living, demanding them to work for long hours.
, I would advise to avoid these two actions. I look forward to seeing you, and if you need any
information, please do not hesitate to contact me Best wishes, Isuru
