Arranging your own accommodation privately

If you are booking your own accommodation privately it is important that you let us know where you are staying and that you are living within a 60-minute commute of the International Study Centre.

Look out for fraud

Scammers may specifically target international students so it is important to be able to recognise common signs of fraudulent activity and know what to do if you come across it. 

Let us know at if you have any concerns about fraudulent activity when dealing with a private accommodation provider so that we can help to protect you and other international students in case they are targeted in the same way.
