So the 4 of them are hoping to live together. DD rang Italia who said they have an accommodation day at the end of July / beginning of August, no date set yet. Is this normal for London? My son is in Birmingham and they organised accommodation last November for this September!
We live in the North West and are not familiar with London, apart from sight seeing and theatres, so do I trust my gut that says Italia know what they are doing?
Congratulations to your dd. Yes, a few of the drama schools have accommodation days around July/August or hand out accommodation lists for you to find places on your own and no one wants to start paying rent in London before they have to! There should be plenty of accommodation at this time. My dd's friend started the BA Acting at Italia Conti last year and found the accommodation day helpful in finding somewhere to live and meeting people to share with.
