After choosing your program, the next important decision is where to live! Many colleges and institutes offer on-campus housing, ranging from shared condominiums or apartments to dormitories. Often the rental cost includes a meal plan and/or utilities such as electricity, phone and internet connection.
Choosing to live off-campus is also an option, though this will require you to be responsible for meals, utilities and often furniture as well.
Many students choose to live in home-stays. This is when a student stays with another family who provides them meals and a home, while helping to show them around their new city and acclimatize to their surroundings.
