I'm hoping to study International Relations at King's next year and I've been looking around at accommodation. I noticed that you can rent for different periods of time (40 weeks, 48 and 51 or whatever) and I was wondering what any KCL students would recommend? I've checked my term dates and it looks as if my term only runs from September - May, however I also have a two week period of examinations in August so I'm confused as to how long I should rent it out for. I feel like there's no point renting it out for a year because my term will technically end in May but I'll still have to come back for a week or so of examinations, but then I'm wondering where will I stay then? I mean I could just commute there but I feel like that would be really expensive.
Does anyone have any recommendations? I would prefer to take the lower contracted weeks since it works out cheaper (in some cases), but any advice from King's students is much appreciated!
Will it ever be possible?
