“Even in accommodation which is specifically for students, it is possible for young people to feel isolated”
Where you live is an extremely important aspect of international student education. Living arrangements do have an emotional impact on students, whether they realise it or not.
For international students who are coming to study in the UK for the first time, the experience of living abroad can feel overwhelming. Most will be far away from friends and family, embarking on an entirely new chapter in their lives.
Cultivating a sense of community within halls of residence and private accommodation is therefore extremely important, particularly for those which are marketed towards international students.
