                                                               The majority of our partner universities guarantee university-run accommodation for international students during their first year of
                                                               study, which makes sorting your finances and lodging much easier from home, since you will not have to worry about any extra
                                                               utility payments, taxes or fees; these are all included in one lump sum paid directly to the university.

                                                               The cost of living in UK student halls varies and depends on location, the length of your contract, and how new and modern the

                                                               cost week-by-week, with prices ranging anywhere from $130-$500 per week. Whatever housing option you choose, you can
                                                               be confident in the knowledge that you will not be paying for any extras since electricity, water, taxes, and internet costs are all
                                                               included.

                                                               If you prefer, you can choose to find private accommodation, but this can be a bit more complicated to arrange long distance,
                                                               and you will be responsible for not only your rent, but also possibly city taxes and extra bills, like internet fees, depending on
                                                               where you live and with whom you live. Additionally, many landlords want to meet students in person before leasing their space.

                                                               Landlords may also require large, upfront deposits, and often you will need a British guarantor and/or a British bank account.
                                                               This does not mean that living in private accommodation is impossible; it is just a little bit more complicated and time-consuming to
                                                               arrange. Some of our advisors have lived off-campus during their studies in the UK and are always happy to chat with you if you
                                                               are considering this option, but ultimately you are responsible for your own living arrangements.

                        that will best serve your academic and professional goals. You will receive free

                        from one British partner university to another and from one academic department
                        to another, so entry requirements are one area where past ATP students have really

                        GRADUATE DEGREES IN THE UK
                        The Across the Pond UK partner universities have an outstanding range of top grad-
                        uate degree programs, most of which are offered in globally-leading departments.
                        Whether you have already completed a study abroad program and wish to pursue
                        British graduate degree or wish to study in the UK for the first time, we offer you op-
                        tions specific to your individual objectives and background.

                        A British master’s degree can bring several benefits compared to a corresponding
                        US degree. A recent IPSOS MORI survey has actually revealed that most employers
                        in the US consider degrees earned in the UK to be the same as or better than those
                        earned in the US.

                        Our Across the Pond Advisors will help assess your academic background, GPA,
                        professional experience, and personal interests before recommending the universities
                        and the programs that will best serve your professional goals. You will receive free

                 hand. The University of Essex was my first choice because it is well known for
                  its work in both politics and philosophy. I settled in quickly, especially as my
                   school held a welcome reception for all new students (complete with drinks
                 and a game of pool with our tutors in Top Bar!) and provided us with mentors.

                       Throughout my time at the University, my academic circle has been
                 outstanding and provided me with guidance, assistance and a path to shaping
                 my academic life here at Essex and beyond. I especially enjoy my philosophy
                   modules and the different ways in which I am taught; lectures provide the
                intellectual framework I need to explore issues and my classes are run in a way
                         that allow all to engage, discuss and explore content material.”
