University travel: how to make the most of the long summer break

23rd June 2016

One of the great things about university life is the long summer break between each year of study. It’s an opportunity to explore, to travel and to make the most of your free time. Once entering the world of work, such extensive breaks are unlikely to occur, so be sure to enjoy them during your university life!

The UK is home to a wide variety of beautiful countryside, charming towns and bustling cities. Its compact size makes it ideal for exploring by train or by car. Whether you’re into isolated moors and windswept beaches or buzzing urban centres packed with activity, the UK has plenty to offer.

Music lovers can spend the summer following their passion, with festivals taking place across the length and breadth of the country. Foodies can tour from region to region, sampling local delicacies, finding tucked away farm shops and enjoying gourmet food fairs.

Even if you’re working over the summer months or enjoying an internship, be sure to make the most of your weekends by making overnight visits to other cities that are within easy reach.

And remember that making the most of your long summer break also means enjoying your accommodation. You can rent a range of Collegiate student properties as summer lets, with rates varying from property to property.

If you’re based in Edinburgh, for example, then why not head to Glasgow for a long weekend, enjoying the comfy en-suite apartments, cinema and gym at 333 Bath Street? Or if your term-time home is in Derby, why not head north to check out Leeds, or south to check out Birmingham. We’ve got three fabulous summer let properties available in Leeds this summer, as well as the lovely Brook Studios in Birmingham, with its spacious apartments, on-site gym and fully equipped kitchens.

Wherever and however you choose to spend your summer, make the most of the long summer break and be sure to stay in style!
