Hello! Thank you for writing a wonderful blog! I am an international student going to Newcastle University this October. I have been offered accommodation at Easton Flats. I was wondering what do you think of Easton Flats - do you have any pictures of the place? Should I take it or not? Thank you so much!

Hey!

Easton Flats is not fancy or anything but I loved the area it was located in (Jesmond).

Do you have any tips for writing a grad school personal statement? :)

Hi! Do you remember exactly how long it took for you to get your visa? And is there an expedited service? Thanks for your help, you (and your blog) are awesome! :)

Three weeks after I mailed my application, I received my passport with my visa inside. There are certain companies that offer expedited services but I do not know much about them. I preferred using the regular route.

Hi I hope you get to this question right away because it's super important. For the visa application do they take your passport for those four weeks? Or do you get it back after your appointment?

Yes, when applying for the visa you need to mail your passport with the application. Once you have been approved, they mail your passport back with the visa stamp inside.
