International Applicants

What you need to know as an international student applying for accommodation.

All international students are guaranteed accommodation in our University student halls, as long as you are in your first year of study and apply before 6th August 2020. 

If you select Manchester Met owned or leased accommodation you will be required to pay £1500 of the total rent as a Pre Payment of Rent to secure the room.  This Pre Payment of Rent will be deducted from your rent overall and the balance of the rent is collected in 3 parts, usually in October, January and April.

International student accommodation contracts begin a week earlier than other contracts – allowing international students to attend the “Welcome Week” activities.

International students may be especially interested in securing accommodation at Cavendish place. This hall offers 51 week contracts starting on 5th September. To find out more visit the Cavendish Place web page.

We also offer the earlier contract to full time Postgraduate students if their academic course starts prior to the “Welcome Week” activities, which is likely to apply to PGCE Primary, PGCE Secondary and GDipLaw (FT).
