Hey guys!

I've got an offer at UCL for a PGCE starting this September. It does mean i will be moving to London but since im not an international student i dont qualify for the uni's accommodation so will need to look elsewhere in the city. Anyways, given the current situation and the uncertainty of it, do you think it will still be a good idea to look and book accommodation? I don't want to leave it too late and have all the decent places taken but im also worried i wont get my money back if i pay a deposit and the course ends up being delayed or whatever.

Hey. I am an international student who is also planning to start at UCL this September. I am pretty sure you can get accommodation even if you're not international so try to look into that a bit more. Even if you don't qualify, I think it would be smarter to book private accommodation. If our classes do end up being online, that would be the case for every single person that studies in London and not just you. So the accommodation would have to come up with a way to give everyone's deposits back. So I don't think you need to worry about that

Hi, same here I will be on Master at UCL. From France, so can't apply for Uni accomodation. Did you find interesting student hall ? I think I will deposit now and see if I can go there or not. I found a couple of accommodation but the reviews are all mitigated ............

Hey, I have managed to find student accommodation somewhere in the city that's half an hour away from UCL by tube. I've paid my deposit as well so at least that is sorted.
Better to get it sorted now!

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?
