Student Advice

The Student Journal

Here for all of your student needs, the Student Journal explores all questions related to Student Accommodation in London that can’t be answered through a text book. Written by recent graduates and urbanest residents for local and international students, we create all kinds of content that will help you get the most out of your student life. The categories you can browse through include Study, Careers & Finance, Accommodation, London Life and News & Events.

Our Study category will help educate students on improving their quality of work, time management and productivity. For expert advice on stretching your student loan, making extra money during their studies and other useful articles, visit our Careers & Finance section.

The Accommodation category will provide you with a range of articles to help with any student accommodation woes, from how to get on with your flatmates to splitting household bills or personalising your bedroom. For insight into the exciting places to visit and things to do around London you should visit our London Life category.

Finally, our News & Events category will help keep you up to date with the latest goings-on in this very busy city. Select any of these categories to find a wealth of information relevant to your new London student life.

At the Student Journal, we know that being a student isn’t particularly easy and we can relate to whatever dilemma you may have. To add to our own advice, we regularly reach out to experts, such as psychologists, artists, writers, interior designers and professors who can help you cope with the stress of being a student.
