International Friendly Standard
The International Friendly Standard has been created by Manchester Student Homes to recognise those landlords and private halls who provide a fair and transparent service to international students in regards to bookings and contractual terms, as well as going that extra mile in the level of service they provide to international students.
It is supported by the International Departments at The University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan as well as the International Society. The International Student Friendly standard is available to all students from The University of Salford, UCEN and The Royal northern College of Music.
