Student life in the UK is, by and large, a supportive and social one, but even the most outgoing person can be forgiven for feeling a little nervous for their first few days in an unfamiliar country. All educational institutions in the UK understand this and try to make their international students feel at home whilst they find their feet.
Many universities will guarantee you accommodation in halls of residence for your first year, close to all the campus facilities and most organise welcome meetings where you can familiarise yourself with your new surroundings.
In addition, counselling and special advice services are
always available, while student unions and societies for international students also offer valuable support.
