As a property management service Step2 has working partnerships with private and statutory Schools, Colleges and Universities in the UK.
For International students the requirements for them to study in the UK often brings additional demands within the preparation process. Students are often required to improve their English to bring it up to the standard required to permit them to study within further education. This need is assessed by the college or university where they wish to study. The onus is then placed on the student to source and attend an English language course and many providers within the UK do not offer English Language courses and provide accommodation.
In our experience the processes students have to work through to study in the UK often places students into an environment where they only have a small amount of time to source local accommodation.
This is a difficult task because of the restrictions some letting agents place on access to accommodation. Often short term agreements are not permitted and students find themselves living in expensive hotel accommodation with no ability to secure the more cost effective choices available to long term students.
Step2 has set up a responsive property letting agency that:
- Manages an effective meet and greet service
- Provides 3, 6, 9 and 12 month rental agreements
- Offers shared accommodation for groups
- Provides Family accommodation
- Move on support to their chosen University
