Hey all,
I'm new here. Will soon travel to UK for a short term internship. Just need to decide which city would be the best to live! Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hello and welcome to the forum

Not sure what to suggest. This is a British expats forum or, in other words, for Brits or others who are relocating elsewhere in the world. So opposite direction to you

I guess you may get some info from those Brits who are moving back to the UK. You can try this section here:
Moving back to the UK - British Expats

Hope it all works out.

Surely it depends on where the internship is based? If you can give that info, then people can suggest areas to live that would be within commuting distance - also a housing budget and an idea of how you'll be getting around (i.e. if you'll have a car or be limited to public transport) would help them narrow down areas.

But as said above, post your query with a bit more info in the MBTTUK forum, and I'm sure the kind folks there will help.

Good luck.

Will do, thanks! It's not certain yet where the internship will be. Basically, I need to choose a city first and THEN apply for internship in that place. My university will take care of the rest.
I'll be using public transportation and obviously I prefer a place that is not crazily expensive. I'm also concerned about racism, so I need a place where people will be more welcoming.

Ah, ok. That's a bit of a tricky one then, with so wide a choice! I'd forget anywhere in the south if you don't want crazy expensive although some of the cities (i.e. Bath, Windsor or Oxford) are just gorgeous, and cheaper than London, maybe somewhere in the North or Midlands i.e. Leeds, Birmingham, Liverpool?

Good luck choosing!
