I've received an unconditional offer from the University of Stirling for English Studies & Politics and I'm currently looking into how to apply for accommodation through the university. The information on the website about the different properties was great, but I'm still a bit confused because I'll be moving from Sweden so it's a whole new world for me.
Like, what are the most popular properties? Is it super competitive when you apply? In what kind of room do you usually end up your first year? Are studio flats not a thing you'd go for?
Because I'm going to have a decent amount of money each month and don't mind spending a bit extra on accommodation. I've been living in my own flat since I was 15 so a studio flat at uni sounds pretty great at this point, but is that even possible?
Just getting some info about that kinda stuff would be great! I don't know anyone in the area and I don't have anyone helping me with my university application either since I graduated a year ago and have been working since. And if you have any other helpful tips and trick that's more than welcome too of course!
...for the 2nd time this year
