Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

    1. a bit confused about the 38-week lease. are people expected to bring their stuff out in summer? I'm an international student so taking stuff home just doesn't seem very convenient. or are most international students taking the 50-week lease?

    2. I think i've narrowed my choices down to College Hall, High Holborn, and urbanest Westminster Bridge. I'm currently leaning towards College Hall since there seems to be a good mix of people, but urbanest rooms seem a little cozier (& definitely pricier). I read threads saying that social life is better at catered halls, but my friend at urbanest Westminster Bridge says she's doing just fine. And how do people feel about the catering? (still not sure if i'm brave enough to take on british food)

    Thanks for any help.

    Hello! I'm also an international student, so I selected a 50 week lease. I was told by LSE Housing that if you select a 38 week lease, you can find on campus short term summer housing through LSE, but you won't have your pick of all the halls, rooms, etc. Essentially, you can do the 38 week lease, but then be prepared to move into another hall during the summer. Hope this is helpful! What else did your friend have to say about Westminster Bridge? That's where I'm living!
