You do not need to decide on accommodation yet; simply if you would like the school to organise it or not.

School organises = Placement fee applies but it is simpler.

Organise Yourself = More time but you get to decide everything.

The schools also organises airport pickup for their students.

Don't forget to go back and submit the booking form!!
