2014 Competition

In order to assist students in their decision-making on accommodation, ISANA invited international students to create videos showcasing different types of accommodation, with the aim of helping other students to make informed choices.

ISANA held competitions for students to submit videos, based on their personal experiences. The categories included:

  • Halls of Residence / Residential Colleges (on and off campus)
  • Student hostels (off campus)
  • Student apartments (off campus)
  • Shared private rental
  • Homestay

The winning entries have been shown at the last two ISANA Annual Conferences and have been uploaded to YouTube as a resource to help students and student advisers. The videos cover:

  • advice on what to look out for and how to settle in
  • pitfalls to avoid
  • the most rewarding aspect of that accommodation type

ISANA encourages students to view the videos when weighing up their choices and to contact your institution for further advice.
