Cultural awareness

Studying in a different culture can sometimes cause problems. As a foreign student, you may not know the local culture very well and all those ‘unwritten rules’. Prepare for success has lots of resources about what it’s like to study in the UK.

Task: Think about your own culture and what you think the biggest differences are between that culture and the UK. Share what your thoughts and experiences with the course.

If you are living here in the UK now, share your experiences with others in the course - what have you found difficult or different?
