Rent is this city is horrific. I know, you know, we all know. There's a lot of people struggling here with you, you're not alone in this at all.
Basically if you want to save money, you're going to need to lower your standards. You're saying £600-700pcm if you don't want to live in an unhygienic dive? Well, you might need to reconsider what you consider a dive. For example this place: [link] is only £540pcm all in, and don't seem to dive-like to me.
You're telling me travel costs are expensive, and don't I know it! But there's a quick an easy solution to this: buy a bike. Get a decent one, get it set up nice, get some waterproofs and lights and all that shit. You'll end up spending maybe £250-300, but you'll have saved that money in less than three months.
And nice food? Dang man, I feed three people on a budget of £70 a week and we eat fine. Everything I eat might be marked "Tesco Everyday Value", but a bit of creative cookery and some nice spices means everything can become tasty!
So yeah, lower your standards and buy a bike. That's pretty much it. Cut your food budget in half and look for property to rent more in the £550pcm price range, and you'll be saving money much easier.
edit: I just re-read this and realised it sounded kinda unsympathetic, or like I'm accusing you of having too high standards in the first place. That wasn't my intention, it's just horrible matter of fact. You damn well SHOULD have decent standards of living. Everyone wants to have a decent quality of life, lived to a decent standard. It's just cruel fact that in London, in this housing economy, and on your income..
Well if you want to save, you're going to have to drop some standards. That's how working class people live in London. That's pretty much the only solution to your problem.
I believe those are "transit bolts" for a front loading washing machine. They're put in when you're moving the machine (or when it's new), and they keep the drum from moving around too much in shipping.
If you do a google image search for "washing machine transit bolts" you'll see a bunch of different styles. These, for instance, are similiar:
They have other ones, like Advertising Manager... which is also voluntary and therefore unpaid.
Part of that role includes "Create ways to gain the business money"
So they want you to create revenue streams, but not compensate you for it. That's just rank. It's awful that someone thinks it's good practise to operate a business in this manner.
I'm selling my old one on there, I'm legit & can provide documentation. Probably not the best platform to be posting on if everyone is presuming they're all stolen.

There's no magic fix, you're looking for a flat at peak student time. All you can do is go on Rightmove and Gumtree filter by recently added and keep going on every day to see what's new. If you get a viewing (most professional letting agent require you view it), decide right and there if you want it and contact the letting agency, I've lost out on a flat because we took 30 minutes to talk about it.
YES. YOU ARE RIGHT. MY CAR RECOGNITION GENERAL KNOWLEDGE ~~AI~~ ASSUMED IT WAS THIS MODEL: [link]
FALLS WITHIN MARGIN OF ERROR, WOULD YOU AGREE HUMAN?
EDIT: DUE TO MISTAKE
>Because some people need a car but aren't able to drive due to the massive backlog caused by the idiotic government,
Unfortunately its one of the things that have been affected by a global pandemic. Its a bit difficult to social distance in a vauxhall corsa.
>and some people have disabilities and can't drive, you dense fucking prick!
Plenty of disabled people get a car through motability allowance. My friend has motor neuron disease and has a car through the scheme. People who can't drive because of a disability make up a very small percentage of people. Is it unfair yes but unfortunately we cant put on a bus service just for one disabled person.
>Also people in other countries take public transport and don't drive because it's cheaper, because they have a good functioning government (which yours is not and idiots like you still vote for the same people). It's only in the angloworld where that isn't the case.
Ill take the criticisms about the government. They are fair enough but a lot of other countries are more centralised than the UK. The UK has a lot of small towns and rural communities. Give me an example of somewhere that has better public transport that isnt centralised.
>Honestly, I don't know if you realise that you're very fucking privileged and spoiled. Mommy and daddy bought you a car
Hahaha mate I buy my own cars.
>so you assume everyone else can afford or even drive one because you assume everyone else has the same easy life that you do.
Cars aren't expensive. Give me £500 and I'll get you a serviceable car with an MOT and I might even give you some change.
Here's a perfect example. Very Low mileage, its got less miles than most 3 year old cars and the MOT history is very good
Yes its a shitty gutless 1.4 automatic but a car is a car.
Me too. TorqueGT generally specialise in carefully selected grey imports on the pricier side, but I've not seen anything like this. The pound has fallen against the Yen since the Brexit vote which has made imports pricier, but this seems wild to me.
Imported FD2 Type Rs are generally in the £15-20k range ($20-25k) and the contemporary FN2 Mugen Civic Type R they officially sold in the U.K are similar. They only did 200 of those as well. Even with minimal mileage they're almost a fifth of the price.
Mainly posted as it was so mind-bogglingly expensive. And TorqueGT aren't really chancers. There's a good chance someone will pay this or close to it.
There is very very little paid work for musicians and competition is intense.
Gumtree is our version of Craig's list and is where a lot of people will go to find musicians and form bands etc.
You WILL need another job to support you, at least until you get lucky or win the lottery.
definitely not a 'reduced price'. This is what other rooms are going for - ie exactly the same or less than that. If they were to actually pay a cleaner it would cost them minimum £10 per hour, more like £12-15.... which at 4 hours per week is at least an extra £200 per month. They are basically trying to charge their lodger the same price as what you could get a whole private studio or one bed flat for, except you have to live in their attic and be their servant.
Only in the US. I moved to the UK a few years ago and used car prices shocked me. You can buy a decent used car for about 2k. Don't believe me... try this here.
it is insane how expensive used cars are in the US. Some of the cars on this site are under £500. With the rules around vehicle registration (motor tax) and inspections (MOT), most cars are in pretty good shape. My first vehicle here lasted 2 years, and cost £400 (about $550).
Sometimes the local dump has them in their electrical section - might be worth checking with them or giving them a phone. I only spotted 1 on gumtree: [link]
Just because it's not been mentioned yet, it'd be worth talking to the university too. They may be able to help with loans, funds, or other general help (e.g. more assistance to be able to study from home, leniency in things taking longer, etc).
Do many people travel from where he is to university or work nearby? Maybe he could arrange some kind of lift, or the university could help find someone who does that journey regularly. Perhaps even just from somewhere nearby to whatever the local transport hub is (main train station, bus station, whatever).
There are also some online sources for things like that: [link] [link] came up from a quick google along with [link]
Its just a golf mk1 cabriolet and it doesn't cost too much. Pretty nice, but nothing special.

I doubt very much that GCC has such power at their disposal, i could be wrong though.
Perhaps they could go after the private rental market for accommodation that doesn't meet regulatory standards, there looks to be plenty of opportunists trying to cash in.
I've seen a few similar small boxes like that and they had contained shaving razors, the old safety razors.

I can recommend the free applications FileShredder and Eraser <strong>here</strong> to overwrite the free space on your hard drive (you'll only need one).
If you're not familiar; a 'delete' operation simply removes the boundaries which denote a 'file' in the hard drive, without actually deleting the data itself. The above apps overwrite all of this with zeroes, meaning that the data can't be recovered.
If you do a quick search for electronics recycling in your area, you should be able to find the nearest place that'll accept it! If it still works, you might want to reinstall Windows, run FileShredder/Eraser, and then advertise it on <strong>Gumtree</strong>. I'm in the UK too.
Here is the add on gumtree and a google cached version if it goes
There are way more of these jobs than I thought there might be. Check this link out: [link]
Good luck - and remember when applying for bar jobs often personality is way more important than how you (/if you can) pull a pint.
Also dont be scammed by "part-time" or such delivering 1000 leaflets will take around 8 hours at its worst.
Like I said, flatbed trucks - but you don't need a V8 with a 4+L engine!
Occasionally people have Hiluxes or Mitsubishi L200s, but if you don't live on a farm, then you'll just inspire ire - a lot of our parking spaces are narrower than 2M/6ft6in. I think even the new regs only require a minimum length of 4.8M (15.7")
An F-150 ranges from anywhere between 5.3 and 6.3 metres in length. It's enormous!

That's going to be your best 'bang for buck' new shopper bike.
I'd stay away though. I have a road bike and mtb. Got my other half a Pendleton sommerby, the original version of what you linked.
It weighs an absolute tone and the position is not conducive of distances over 3mile and speeds over 10...
I ended up selling it getting a mixte ( [link] ) stripping it and spraying it the same colour whilst adding accessories.
It turned out the same price, actually had some heritage to it, faster, lighter and easier to ride whilst being able to pick all colours etc.
I can help you find one if you like. Second hand at this price is always better
Here's one on sale second hand:
Would someone really go to the trouble of stealing a £160 bike in broad daylight? If anything it's more likely he was going to steal the lights.
Yes I have done it like that as well.
This seller has a £6500 Ben Bunny listed and also a £400 1891 crown.
So I offered her 2 Ben Bunny and 2 Peter Rabbit in swap for the 1891 crown.
She said no and I asked her why she wasn't accepting over £20,000 worth of Potter coins for the swap I have had no explanation from her.
I think you'd do best with a bike if that's the places you'll be frequenting, there's loads of bike lanes and cycle paths around town and especially the Uni area. It's less pleasant in the winter so prepare for the crap weather and make sure you got mudguards etc but otherwise you'll be fine! I'd suggest buying a second hand bike from Gumtree instead of a new one though, some great bargains on there, I got my Mrs a fully sorted mountain bike delivered to my house for £20 last week!
Downtime will give you the chance to explore the region by bike too, literally any direction from town has good bike paths / cycle lanes along the roads, especially along the river or south through Gateshead.
I think the question to ask here is about the RRP of the car vs its real value to you. It's like going into a furniture store when a sale is on and buying a 4 seater sofa for £800 because it's reduced from £8000 when you live alone and could get a very nice second hand one for £100.
I am already FI and have moved to doing work I enjoy so my income is less reliable. For that reason I chose a vehicle which was practical but would fit into a budget that allows me to have no income for a minimum of 5 years.
Even if the car bursts into flames after a year, the monthly cost is still less than this lease programme. And this is before considering the tax savings that I have from doing business mileage in it (0.45p per mile and i expect to do around 5-10k miles. So about £200-400 more actual cash in my pocket.
More realistically, you could go for something much newer with air-con, touch screen, bluetooth etc
Peugeot 108 2016 model: £6000
* Tax £0
* Insurance £500
* Fuel 12p per mile
* £500 per year repairs (let's use worst-case scenario)
* Breakdown cover: £60
Assuming, more realistically, that this car has 10 years of life in it (which it definitely does if you're budgeting to spend £500/year on maintenance!) then that works out to £150/month, allowing you to save an extra £17,600 over that time. And that assumes again that the scrap value is 0.
You could buy a car for £10k tomorrow and set fire to it after 3 years and you'd still be better off than taking this lease.
The most similar type of thing we have in the UK is probably something like the talbot express, which is not nearly as sexy :(
Those are really good prices especially considering the trek they made. I struggle to see how anyone was making money there as those prices would be on the lower end in the UK before the cost of shipping and importing.
Edit: For example here is your new desk (albeit in better condition) in a cheaper UK city. They don't get that much cheaper than that here unless you get real lucky: https://www.gumtree.com/p/other-dining-living-furniture/g-plan-fresco-desk-delivery-available-/1411053077

They've been on here for at least two years that I've seen..

18 months = 78 weeks
78 weeks @ £4.62/week = £360.36 for 18 months
Meanwhile you can buy a brand new PS4 (with games) for £250 from Game, second hand on eBay from £150ish or even as low as £70 on Gumtree if you don't care about playing online...
Flat hunting in Edinburgh is difficult enough when you already live here and can take months to find somewhere, with a pet it's going to be a lot harder for you. Is there no one that can look after the cat where you are now? If you are set on getting a place of your own I'd advise doing some research first, speak with the French Consulate in Edinburgh, they should be able to help. I don't mean to scare you but even if you were to come up for a week now it's highly unlikely you would have somewhere for January, agencies make you jump through hoops for weeks before you can even sign a lease these days. My advice would be to look for private rooms for rent on the likes of [link] You would be far better leaving your cat and moving into someone's house that has a room to rent for six months while you find your feet, get used to how things work here and settle in at your new job. The time will fly past and you can search for a place of your own while you are here. Good luck.
You'll probably struggle to get anything through an agency (and they're mostly arseholes anyway). Might be easier looking for rooms in flatshares, SpareRoom and Gumtree would be good places to start looking. I don't know how easy it'll be to find two rooms in the same flat though if that's what you're looking for.
And put the rest of your 5k towards insurance.
You want something that's gonna do you through uni I'd imagine, so go
Less than 80k
Petrol - for less maintenance
First car so 1.6 max engine size for insurance
German/Japanese or Ford/Volvo for reliability
Do not, I repeat do not, but a French or Italian car unless you want to get to know it intimately over your course of ownership!
There's a good selection of cars on Gumtree,
Don't go to the dealers!
There's a 2013 Punto on Gumtree for less than 4K but they're a bit of a dose so I wouldn't recommend.
You're not going to get anything new that is good for that money. I would start looking for a nice affordable vintage turntable like a Pioneer PL-12D on the UK classified sites.
What sort of work are you looking for? Temp/ Perm/ Contract?
There are plenty of agencies for various job sectors in Edinburgh, plus Gumtree/ S1Jobs for companies not using agencies. Even the Scotsman still has a jobs site.
Don't be put off by this rabble - we drink a lot. Mainly to cope with the shitty climate.
A wee bit of profile stalking tells me you're an Aussie looking for your relos. So first off, head to the Family History at The Mitchell

Definitely buy used, the loss in value especially for cheap cymbals is incredible.
I think the ZXT set on gumtree you mention should be a good deal cheaper, I could get the same set minus the china (who needs a 14in china anyway ;) new for just a few bucks more [here]([link]) (granted, not in GB), or for 80£ used on gumtree.

Us amature gardeners have been spoiled by the peat-laden multi-purpose compost! One sack does it all!
I tried the New Horizon peat free last year, and really liked the results.... Certainly got a good crop of tomatoes from the grow bags!
This year I've got a mixture of the Miracle Gro Peat Free Premium (like £6/sack at my local garden center), some spent mushroom compost from a guy on Gumtree (saved as "Compost Dave" in my address book), last-years New Horizons material brought back to life with some rotted manure and organic slow-release fertilizer granules, and a few sacks of Melcourt SylvaGrow which was I think £15 for 2x50L sacks at another local garden center.
Everything's growing well in my garden!
I think also it's worth matching your compost to your requirements... Bagged multi-purpose compost is good for seeds/potting, but if you want to do mulching or feed your boarders you'd be better of with a soil improver/mulch as it'll do a better job - e.g. this stuff my local garden center carries looks great! It's the spent solid digestate from commercial biogas units, turning municiple solid waste into sustainable peat-free fertiliser and biogas!
Depends on the size of the lawn, and how even the surface is. You'll want a rotary mower rather than a cylinder unless you're cutting it very regularly, and even then I'd still say rotary for a garden. If you have an undulating garden then the wider the cutting deck the worse the cut- high points will be scalped and low points won't get cut, bit obviously if it's a large garden then you'll want something bigger so it doesn't take too long. Personally I'd be tempted by second hand but I am able to maintain these machines myself (not that a second hand one will necessarily need more work than a cheaper new one) so I'd go for something like this. An excellent professional mower, very easy to use, fairly quiet, and the knee I've used is a fair few years old and had run perfectly the whole time. Sorry for the long post, something of a specialist subject of mine haha!
It's worth googling "1999 Corsa" to see what kind of sad specimens are still rolling 20 years later. I feel sorry for some of these cars.
There's always someone flogging it on gumtree.
60p a can or 55 quid a crate, it's a volatile market.
£500 is probably grotty one-bed flat, or halfway decent flatshare. I'd be looking for a flatshare (probably best done a lot nearer the time), maybe in Portobello or somewhere along the road from the college into town - the 44 bus would get you back and forth nice and easily, and if you stay the east side of Leith Walk you'll miss the worst of the traffic.
would be an example, although you'll likely want to find a flat with other students (for council tax reasons, apart from anything else). I doubt there's much hope of a decent flat to yourself at that budget, although others may know more.
This is a global forum - you're going to have much more luck looking into message boards / forums that are specifically for Glasgow.

There are a few rental companies! You can rent an MT-07 (FZ-09) for £500/week.
Ring them up an ask about license details for foreigners etc.
Alternatively, you could buy an old Honda CG for £500 when you get here, might be cheaper in the long run!

To be fair, while this guy is clearly a schmuck (which I hate actually), his asking price isn't completely ridiculous. Guesstimating from used prices, it's probably about £3000 worth of gear there, maybe more. So it is close to $4000.
But even if you wanted every single pedal there, it'd still almost certainly be cheaper to buy them all individually. Plus there's nothing extraordinarily rare there, so it still doesn't really make much sense. The only reason to buy a board like this would be convenience (if you're a schmuck too) or because it'd be cheaper than buying them all individually. So ignore what I just said. Overpriced hipster board.
Seems less ridiculous than this guy:
I've been seeing that ad pop up on Gumtree for well over a year, since at least 2015 (when he wanted £3.5k for it). Who in their right mind would buy that monstrosity, let alone for 2 and a half grand.
What you've got is a 2007 £2 coin. 8.5 million were minted so they're worth face value. However, there was an error produced where the edge lettering was "upside down". These are the coins you see posted for hundreds of dollars. If the coin is laying heads up, with the queen showing, and you read the edge lettering, it will be upside down, like this:
Judging by your picture, I think you lucked out homie 👍 However, I can't speak to how accurate the asking prices online are, so I can't tell you for sure if it's really worth as much as people are asking.
Get another, some good deals on Gumtree some are even free if you dismantle.
You can buy the 110 Pickups anywhere from $4,000 to $12,000 back in the UK. I've sold some collector tractors to guys across the pond and they say a container from New York to Hamburg is like $2,000.
Its not normal to get that done here,(people dont' put images on their resume for example) f anyone has it, their company would have paid for it
If you look at family portrait photographer a bit out of the centre you might have more luck.

If you spray it yourself, short of having a professional sprayer and high quality paints, it will be chipped just as bad in short order, especially if it continues to be locked to public bike racks like that.
I think you need to evaluate what you mean by "restore" and how far down the rabbit hole you're willing to go. That rust we see on the outside of the fork is highly unlikely to ever be the death of the bike.
If you want a cosmetically restored bike the best answer is to replace the fork or have it properly sandblasted and painted, such as at an automobile repair shop.
If however you want to return the bike into factory functional condition I believe you would be safe ignoring the outside of the fork.
That bike model appears to sell in excellent condition for 100# or less so consider that before sinking a whole lot of money into it.
Try Daily Info or Gumtree, there will probably be a lot of temporary Christmas jobs around the town centre too.
To get this started, my suggestion would just be a clean Clio 172/182. You can find a decent one with a great service history for under 3k, or you can get someone else's track car with interesting MOT history.
At the time of release these were Polo sized cars with the power output more similar to the golf gti's. Extremely common budget track cars for good reason, mega fun. Lots of great resources online for them too, like this buyers guide
Unfortunately right now is a bad time to buy computer components. While what your asking to do on a computer isn't demanding on the computer the low range of computer prices is higher than normal.
Here is some links to some cheapish PC's. Might not be great deals but it will give you a idea of prices...
^^^ This I am curious about, it's pretty much right what your looking for. It's in your price range and will likely do what you want. Though it doesn't have a paid for version of windows. You would need to buy a code online (20 bucks if you know where to look or less). I would also bring someone with you to check the computer if you can or find a way to verify the GPU (1050ti) as it's value is 80% of this build or close to that so you want to know 100% it works.
Something like these is what you want.
This is an agency so they should take calls, but it says "students only" so I'm not sure about being a couple. Doesn't hurt to ask though.
Found this on Gumtree, not sure if it's exactly what you're after.

Haha no worries. :) I do think that 25 minutes or less is a short ish commute. Roughly what's your ideal amount to spend on a flat per month? Have you been using Zoopla to have a look? [link]
Not ideal, but: [link]
Of course if there's no wheelie bins where you are yet, will the bin lorry even come? If it's just your place that doesn't have them, can you sneak stuff into the neighbours' bins under cover of darkness? There's always one wee old lady who never fills hers.
$15 is a terrific price if everything on it works.
Just to be clear, this is not a hardtail mountain bike. It's a hybrid for rides in the city.
Looks similar to this one:
Its a very nice Bob Jackson- with shimano 105 components probably 8 or 9 speed.
Made of reynolds 531 steel.
Here's a similar bike:
So realistically this bike may be worth between £300-£500
Could potentially even get carbon at that price in the UK. Planet X are great, I have had several.
Heavily modified Toyota MR2.
It was on sale on Gumtree a while ago.
So it’s a kit? Anything else have a windscreen with curves like that?
JPR Wildcat here
Special 4 lug system so the pit stops are 20% faster?
Could be the builder was inspired by this one?
Until the photog upgrades to something not made by Fisher-Price we may never know.
Keep an eye on Gumtree's sublet section (of which there's a couple on there that might suit you already) or Spareroom (the advanced search is really good if you plug in 'short let' or 'sublet') – there are always plenty of students/freelance people who give up rooms for a month or two and want to let it out.
If you do go for an Airbnb look around East London – Whitechapel, Mile End, Bow, Stratford are all easily accessible on the tube.
This is my favourite so far, btw: [link]
Used BMX parts is not a very big industry. And some bike stores don't want to deal in them because of complications. Your best bet is still, unfortunately, GumTree [link]
The best way to get used deals is still word of mouth. Knowing riders on the local area who know a guy who know a guy selling a frame, etc.
Here's the original...
Yeah, I've seen 3 bed semi detached houses in (well, around) Liverpool for 80k. They even had a drive! Some friends of my missus bought a 2 bed semi detached on a corner plot, so it's got a massive garden for how big the house is and they paid £67k for it... 67k isn't even a deposit in some parts of the country.
There's a terraced house down the road from me that's up for 58k and the advert claims a rent of £440 a month so that's probably about right. It's not a shit area or anything, it's just average. Not much crime, lots of old people, bit socially deprived. I've lived within half a mile of the house I grew up in for my whole life and it's never been a bad area. Few scally kids, but nothing major.
It's not even that bad of a house, although the road it's on is one of those unadopted ones which hasn't seen any works done since the dawn of time.
Beats the studio I saw on Gumtree last night in London somewhere - £1140 a month and your bedroom also doubles as a dining room and kitchen...!
seems about the same as it was before the announcement tbh
9 available? Doesn't seem like anyone's dumping in the UK at least.
I think the best option for any make/model OEM wheels is to buy a second hand set and have them repaired if needed, usually around £60 or so a wheel.
This Raleigh is another option for a light commute, just needs a brake caliper clean and lube (or put something newer on there)..$50

The current attitude towards photographers of "Everyone has a camera, so why should I pay for decent photography?" is like stating fifty years ago "Everyone has a pen, so why should I pay for decent writing?"
Still, a quick search lead me to this which might help OP:
Well, he's getting warmer, but it's definitely not a £500 tree either. Maybe a £50-£100 tree at best.
I'd say probably closer to £50 given that all of those trunks need to be chopped for taper at some point. So you're really just buying the base, which looks a bit iffy to begin with.
But if somebody just wants a maple to play with and doesn't have aspirations of turning every tree into a masterpiece, I could see somebody maybe paying £100 for this and getting some enjoyment out of it. But I personally think it's overpriced at that.
As a comparison, £100 is more than what I spent on this one, which looks like this 2.5 years later. Even with the work I've done on the branches and getting it into the training pot, it's still not a £500 tree imo, and it's objectively better than what he has listed.
Not to shit all over the guy's parade or anything, but people need to learn how to price their trees.
If the release of the 1080 is anything to go by, the market will be flooded with 980Ti's. I know UK Gumtree was.
I mean, looky here. An MSI 980Ti for a measly 250.
I don't care what your power bill is, that's a hell of a deal. I know sometime has passed and now the 1080Ti is a thing, but this is still monstrous 1080p/1440p gaming performance in a reasonably efficient package.
If I were you, I would look for a second-hand laptop containing an Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processor and an Nvidia GTX 850m or 860m (preferably the GTX 950m or 960m but as they're newer chances are they'll cost more.) I'm located in the US so many of those sites are unfamiliar to me, however, I did look over Gumtree real quick and found one listing for under 400 that looked pretty good. I'm not sure if that's within reach of where you live or whatever, but I figured it would be worth posting.
Here's a link: [link]

About an hour southwest of London and you could have this one for 20,000 pounds...[link]
Some nice ones on gumtree..
I have a giant hybrid and they are very good
The best areas to look for will be Nicholson Street, Newington and Marchmont. I would suggest websites like zoopla.co.uk or even [link] . There are a lot of Facebook groups for stuff like this.
I'm not sure, but you'd probably be better off just picking up a cheap second hand bike and selling it on again when you're done with it. Just had a quick look on gumtree and there's this one for £50. Just stick it back on gumtree after term time.
Student accomodation is usually advertised as that and from student landlords. It's often multiple room houses and you rent per room rather than an entire apartment, although it can be apartments too. Since they expect students to be drunk and messy, the furniture is usually very bottom rung. If you're only looking at entire apartments rather than house sharing with other people, you'll probably get a better standard as most students will be in multiple room properties. Student houses will usually be near the university and will talk about that as a selling point.
Renting privately is a better idea if you can than a letting agency, since it avoids agency shenanigans and allows you to talk to the landlord direct. I have rented most of my properties off Gumtree.
For example (I just looked at the listings posted in the last 1 hour in my city)
That one is obviously professional
This one clearly says it's a student house and if you look at the pictures the furniture is obviously dated and minimal but would do the job for students.
Neither is ideal. Bikes with suspension are terrible for commuting on roads as they are heavy and energy is needlessly wasted on the suspension.
How tall are you and I'll see if I can find something a bit better
I think this if it's the right size for you is an ideal commuter bike
Actually they are among the brightest dots in the night sky... And easy to find IF you know where to look :-) That's what monthly astronomy newsletters, [link] and Apps are for. Especially apps make it very easy. They use the phone's motion sensors to literally point him into the right direction.
Yeah, especially binoculars with 10x or more are difficult to hold steady for astronomical use.
Tracking-> EQ mounts make tracking a bit easier, BUT in this price range most sets are not overly stable.
Oh, Ireland -> Some other choices available over there. Not sure where to search. There seems to be "northdowntelescopes" but they only have two offers on their site. There's another Skylux, but I'd recommend looking around for a 130eq or even a 5", 6" dobsonian.
I've found my last 3 flats on Gumtree. All private lets. Down the left hand menu in Gumtree make sure to set the "Seller Type" to Private. Then scroll down past the 'featured' ads that always appear as the first few. Right now it says there are 250ish private rents available. [link]
