It’s a big decision when you decide to move away from home to work, however we wouldn’t recommend doing what this person did, although we do admire him!
Evan Eames, a 24-year-old astrophysics student from Canada, took to websites Reddit and Gumtree to explain his accommodation woes. As an international student he was required to pay £20k for his fees, and found himself short of cash for his rent.
It wasn’t long before he received an offer from good Samaritan, Charley Mantack, 34, who spotted an opportunity. In exchange for maths and physics tutoring for her exams, she allowed him to camp in her Stockport garden for 10 months.
He was there the whole time come wind, rain or snow. And there can be a lot of that in Manchester…
It can’t help with revision though, so we’d always recommend trying to find good accommodation, first!
