Travelling overseas for your studies can be daunting. With the added pressure of finding accommodation and travelling solo, we wanted to point out some things to remember.
We can book you in for virtual online viewings for all of our properties in all of our locations, taking the stress out of finding somewhere to live from overseas, in advance of arriving in the UK. We have multiple options for taking payment and the sign up process can all be completed online.
If your flight is arriving in the middle of the night or outside of office hours, a lot of our properties have key safes, which means you are able to access the property 24/7. This allows international tenants to arrive in the UK with a secure home waiting for them.
If you are not wanting to commit to a property virtually, we can assist with short-term serviced apartment accommodation as an interim. We can usually be relatively flexible, and shorten or extend your serviced apartment, depending on how quickly you find your permanent place to stay.
There are places within Newcastle City Centre that provide our international visitors with some home comforts. There's a huge range of places to eat out and visit, like Chinatown, and many supermarkets and shops that provide international students with a taste of home.
At Seekers, with the help of our bilingual staff members, we hope that we can offer support and guidance to any international students arriving in the UK.
If you have any queries, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at 0191 243 1000.
