Student Profile
Dionne Lee (Malaysia): While I was studying English in London, I heard about from friends. It's a great website, its quick and easy to use and it lists some great places to stay which you can book online. I used it to book university accommodation in Edinburgh during the Edinburgh Festival, which was fantastic! I've also used to find cheap flights and accommodation for my weekend trips all over the UK and Europe. It has also given me lots of ideas on how and where to travel on my budget. I've had a great time travelling and made some really nice friends!

Long-Term Accommodation
It can be difficult to find good value long-term student accommodation in the UK from abroad. It is far easier to look once you arrive. You will be more likely to find and reserve a place to stay within your budget, in the right location, and with the right people once you're in the UK. TravelStay recommend that international students who have not had accommodation arranged for them already book into short-term accommodation for at least a few weeks. This time can be used to find long-term accommodation.
