For every prospective international student wishing to leave their country of residence to study abroad, choosing a suitable school can be a challenge. Alongside that challenge is the issue of accommodation. A lot of international students have to lodge into hotels on arrival before finding a more permanent solution to their housing challenge. Staying in a hotel for an extended period can be very expensive and spaces within school hostels are usually limited and on a first come, first served basis. Luckily, other alternatives exist.
The major alternative is for students to take up abodes in locations that are outside the school premises. Students who wish to stay off-campus should ensure that they put a lot of factors into consideration before settling down on a choice. One of the most important considerations is the issue of cost. Other considerations could be ease of movement and a good transportation. Also network, safety, proximity to their school, city center and other amenities.
Having an international learning experience is also about social and interracial interaction in living with people from different backgrounds from us.
