I have confirmed my UEA offer and will be studying there starting from September. I have visited their website and saw that my accommodation place is guaranteed for the 1st year, but not in the 2nd and 3rd year. I found this quite worrying, as I am from Hong Kong, not familiar with the UK environment, finding an apartment myself in UK in the 2nd year of living seems so challenging. What are the chances that I can get an accommodation place in year 2 and 3? Or what will students normally do in the 2nd and 3rd year? Do they rent houses with friends normally?
But did you bother to watch?
