    Hi everyone!

    This September I'm starting a PhD in Media Arts and Technology (MAT) at Queen Mary. I'm very excited, but haven't been provided much information from the university since receiving my offer. I have two questions in particular:

    1) Since we are meant to have an internship in the second half of our first year, what do most people do about accommodation? You can't have college accommodation because of this, right? Are most people's internships in London?

    2) Do we get provided with computers/laptops? My current one is five years old and falling apart, I was about to get a new one, but then someone said that we might get provided with them. Is this true? How good are they, do they do the job?

    Thanks for any help you can give! Would be excited to hear from anyone who is starting this year too
