Moving to the uk - where to live

Recommended Posts

Moving to the uk from aus ( have uk passport and citizenship) where would you reccomend living that isnt too expensive, has good transport. Would you recommend share house? Finding my own place and renting out rooms?

based on personal experience, I would recommend living in a medium sized city like Manchester, Birmingham or Bradford. These cities have ample working opportunities as well as lower living cost and good transportation. I lived in London, Dundee and some areas in wales as well before settling in Manchester for 3 years between 2009 and 2012 (studied and worked there) and never had any real difficulty finding work. 

As far as living options are concerned it depends upon your personal preference and income. In Manchester you can find a decent apartment form 400-500 pounds/ month (we shared a four bedroom house for 550/month). But i guess that will depend upon your preferences, your income and the area you end up living in.

Thanks for your reply. It was very helpful. Manchester was at the top of my list, but good to have some other options. And yeah, hoping to organise something similar to your living situation as well. Fingers crossed it all works

It rains in Manchester.  A lot.  Start with London imo, lots of fun for a yongster like yourself!  Google rooms in shared houses.


PR (100) planning to move to Perth by then end of 2019!
