Hi. I'm an international student from the US. I applied to several universities in the UK including goldsmiths. Finding out they had guaranteed accommodation for international students was a major factor in me accepting their offer....unfortunately this turned out to be untrue and now I'm on a "waiting list" and since I'm paying for university with a student loan I do not know when Goldsmiths will give me access to my money, making private accommodations uncertain.
Has anyone had experience on this waiting list? Is it just a nice way of saying "we're not giving you accommodation"? Does anyone know when student loans are actually given to the students?
What should I do?
