As the new term begins, vast numbers of students up and down the country will be starting to move into their new homes.

The private rented sector is one of the primary providers of housing to students, accommodating 30% of students in 2017/18. Dataloft Rental Market Analytics (DRMA) reveals that, across the country, 9.6% of students starting tenancies in the last 12 months were international students, moving into privately rented homes from overseas.

In London demand from international students is even higher with a fifth (20.6%) of students moving into privately rented homes coming from other overseas.
