But if this process still scares you, read this article about the stages of moving with the purpose of learning, so that everything will fall into place.
Having received a positive response from the university, you need to think about housing. And then the eternal question arises: what is better, an apartment or a hostel? We will try to understand in detail.
If the money question (reference to the student’s budget) is not worth it, but you want to live in maximum comfort, then, of course, an apartment! Large and with a beautiful view.
Most often, those who move are still limited in money. And everyone wants to take off cheaper. If cheaper, then the hostel! And do not be afraid of the Austrian dormitories, they are beautiful (private toilet, bathroom and kitchen – the usual things in such hostels).
Below we give you a comparative table of apartments and hostels based on the minimum area (per person):
|Price||300-500 euro||250-350 euro|
|Electricity||30-50 euro||Included in rent|
|Utility||50-80 euro||Included in rent|
|Internet||10-30 euro||Included in rent|
|Furniture||Need to buy||Dorm rooms fully furnished|
|The procedure for concluding an agreement||Without being in the country, you can rent only from a large company, private landlords do not want to cooperate with those who are not yet in the country or have just arrived.
||If you have a certificate of enrollment from the university and there is space|
Some hostels with which we cooperate are offered free of charge: – gym,
– shared kitchen,
– common room for parties,
– room for rehearsals,
– a room with a TV.
|Pets||By agreement of the owner||Forbidden|
|Moving with children||Not a problem.||There are student dormitories that allow settling with minor children.|
