When I decided to apply to Edinburgh University, I made sure that I did all of my homework on not only learning about the university but about the area as well. I did not want to get accepted to the university only to find out that I would not be able to afford to live in the city too. I already knew that I would be completely happy with the university, so I focused on learning about the Edinburgh University flats that are available to international students like myself. It actually did not take me too long to find the information that I needed because of a website that I had found.
The thing I really liked about it was that it is not a huge corporation handling the flats. It is a small family-owned business, which gives it a more personal touch. I also liked that I was able to look at pictures of the flats, and I really liked what I saw. I did not need anything luxurious. A simple flat with an area to shower and sleep, cook and eat, and study is basically what I was looking for.
I actually was not looking for something as nice as what these flats are, so I was pleasantly surprised to see that they are nice and comfortable, quite clean, and reasonably priced as well. The furniture is already there, and the rooms are a perfect size for what I needed. The next best thing about them is their location. I would be able to get to my classes as well as anything else I could need or want while there. Applying for one of these flats was very easy too. After getting accepted, everything else just fell into place for me. I am really looking forward to this new chapter in my life.
