An exciting website with the clever concept that makes it possible to sublet your room while studying abroad. Further having the option to find a new place in your host city. All relevant search options are available and the layout is clearly arranged. With your student e-mail-address you are able to use their service for free. A website which is extremely helpful for students planning to study abroad!
Countries/Cities: Best for Southern Europe, UK and France, but there are offers from around the globe.
Student Mundial provides a fresh and cool website specialised on student accommodation! Great for students looking for a place in the UK, Southern Europe or France, but the website is expanding to other areas! You can find out how student-suitable your area is (close to bars, pubs and places to do your daily shopping) and you can chat with potential flatmates. Another very good service is that you can check the distance of a room/flat to your university/college easily on the website and the map layout is very helpful. Also check out their student guide for the city you're planning to study in!

In terms of private tutoring services - technology and the internet have given rise to their accessibility along with communication with the market place. Here is a breakdown from around the planet of various set-up's that are engaging in the tutoring industry from an online perspective.

A quick guide to University and College

First year: The "culling" phase

University - the promised land of forward thinking, education and the transition into adulthood. Rest assured it is a "promise" because University in reality is actually a wake up call. The transition from high school to university to the working world is full of challenges and the first year of university has become a challenge for many. In a way it is the year that an institution can either funnel or "cull" their number of first year students.

Most certainly a lot of universities offer a four year undergrad with the first year being more of an introduction into their future majors, but making the cut is still tough. And what about the unprepared individuals who are thrown into the deep end of a three year bachelors degree? They are the ones most at risk to face the big old boot.
