salsera: @darkchild
food - little things like plantain chips,indomie noodles Lol
I for instance I am lactose intolerant so I packed plenty Peak milk powder cos thats what works for me


And though you can always buy clothes here there is no point wasting money on staples like jeans

Dont stress over it jare - keep it light, you can find almost everything in the UK apart from good suya


Thanks for the info Salsera..... I would definitely miss my suya embarassed

Is it advisable for one to carry cash(equivalent of more than 10,000Euros) to the UK in order to open a UK account thereby avoiding all the excessive bank Int'l transfer charges? I know one has to declare this by filling a certain form. Has anyone been here before?

I would be going private bro, but ve been speaking with a landlord in Sheffield and would meet him for viewing when I get there so if 'm okay with it I would sign up the contract.

I would keep you posted which ever way it goes, but it would be cool if you could actually team up with someone to get an apartment. Lots of private apartment are actually available for rent within walking distance from school and done even prefer renting it to a group of students as opposed to individuals.

Yes its a good idea but never sign group tenancy agreement, always insist on signing individual agreement.

The prob with group tenancy agreement is....if one person moves out then the rest will have to pay for the empty room, but if its individual then the landlord will have to look for somebody to take up the room.

Aiight bro. PS don't make any payment or sign a contract till you have seen the property yourself. I learnt that from here.

I took a risk by making a deposit of 200 pounds(50k) to secure the accommodation I wanted based on a friends recommendation, but if eventually I do not like the apartment then I have to forfeit my money. That's not the kind of risk I would want to take another time, but we keep learning

I would send you some website where you could search for apartment and arrange for viewing when you get to Sheffield. I would also try to view done apartment when I get there, but remember taste differs and no contracts or financial commitment except you are willing to bear the consequences if any

didn't think of this, thanks for pointing it out. Those going for private accommodation pls take note. I also learnt it is better to take accommodation with bills inclusive rather than paying bills every month.

Sorry for your loss. I can remember that justwise warned you not to pay for an accomodation you have not seen but you did. Wish you had listened.

You can get bill inclusive from £250-£300 for double bedroom a month there in south Yorkshire, for single bedrooms you may get between £170-220 a month, it depends on how good the accommodation is and the distance to university and city center.
