Can I choose my room?

Yes, but provided the room is available.

Do I need to pay for a TV license and council tax as a student living at PMG?

If you plan on watching/recording any live terrestrial TV or on BBC iPlayer, you will need to pay for your own TV Licence. You can set up your TV Licence. You only need a TV Licence if you’re living in the UK. If you’re living in Spain, you do not need to buy a TV Licence. You shouldn’t need to pay council tax in the UK as a full-time student. PMG might ask for evidence of your student status at any point during your stay in order to ensure you are exempt from council tax.
