With a wide range of accommodation offers such as university halls, private accommodation, flatshare, and homestay, students looking for a place in London will be spoiled for choice. Besides websites where you can browse through thousands of trusted properties, you can also make your preferences available to letting agents or search in your universitys forum for advertised places or other students who are looking for housemates. Regardless of your budget and priorities, we can all agree that a friendly and comfortable environment is what we have in mind when searching for a place to call home.

If you are moving to London with an executives job, you can probably afford a house in one of Londons wealthy areas in the west, such as the artsy Notting Hill or the exclusive Knightsbridge, south of Hyde Park. However, for the median expat, who is looking for a popular yet affordable spot, Bromley is only 15 minutes from central Victoria and has ranked as one of the happiest places to live in London, according to the Office for National Statistics. Considering that it is on the Central Line and near Shoreditch nightlife, Redbridge too offers houses at a reasonable cost. If you are moving to London with your family, Sutton is an excellent place to accommodate the needs of your children with its graphic nature and some of Londons lowest crime rates.

Whether you are moving to London now, or you have been living as an expat in England's capital city for some time already, you may have developed the desire to either settle in this outstanding city by becoming a house owner or to invest in a buy-to-let property. Either way, the steps toward purchasing real estate in London will require thorough research, guidance from a legal representative, and, of course, a substantial sum of money.

According to Glassdoor, one of the biggest recruiting sites in the world, over 80% of vacancies in todays job market are not advertised people get to them by word of mouth. So, if you are always too busy to attend networking events, retreats, talks, and seminars, or you feel overly exposed when socialising, think all the opportunities you might be missing by not being present. London offers many different types of networking events from casual gatherings in the pub to university alumni programs and conferences dedicated to specific sectors. Are you ready to sharpen your networking skills and take your career to the next level while in London?

Building a social network as an expat in London is essential if you are looking to achieve the perfect work-life balance. The people you choose to spend time with will help you maintain and even improve your well-being; on the one hand your friends will often bring you out of your comfort zone, and on the other hand, they will create a safe emotional space for you. London's size, the frenetic pace of life, and endless options to see and do things are charming but can also become overwhelming, especially for newcomers.
