    Not sure if this is the right forum so apologies if not!

    Basically I've had interviews for a few graduate roles that are 3-4 months (ie summer work) possibly leading to a full time job (depending on performance).

    The issue is - where can I live for that short period of time? Is it possible to find landlords willing to give a short term tenancy? And if so where would I find them?

    I've had a quick look on zoopla/right move but generally the mimimum contract is 6 months. I thought about university accommodation but the sites aren't close to a campus, and that would likely be pretty expensive!

    In terms of pay, it'd be around £375/ week so I cant afford a lot.
    My other option is to commute - I've got money saved up to get a car but the drive would be 1-1.5 hours each way which obviously isn't preferable!

    Any help appreciated

    Any ideas?

    House shares can possibly have shorter contacts or look into lodging (not much legal protection there but if you only need a few months you should be okay)

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
