Hi everyone, there’s still a lot going on over summer, so let’s get to it.
If you’re going to be a continuing postgraduate next year, or know anyone about to become a postgrad, we’re running our annual Postgrad House Hunting event on August 15th-17th. In collaboration with our Students’ Union owned letting agency Cardiff Student Letting, the event allows you to meet and socialise with other postgraduates and find a house together, with lots of support along the way. It’s a great way to sort out housing for next year.
