STUDY IN UK

Living in the UK

The UK is an incredible mix of international cultures and as an international
student; you’ll find an array of exciting experiences ahead of you. You will
also have the opportunity to discover exotic places and meet new people.

Food

The food you can buy in the UK reflects the many ethnic influences in
British society. Of course, you’ll still find the famous English breakfast and
fish and chips, but you’ll also see a very diverse range of cuisines. When
you become an international student in the UK, cooking and sharing a
traditional meal from your home country is a great way to make new
friends.

Entertainment

Whether you just listen or take part, you’ll find pop, rock, electro, hip-hop,
classical, folk, jazz, opera and all sorts of world music in the UK. From small
clubs, independent cafes and bars to international concert halls, rock
festivals or gigs, you can listen and dance to live music all over the UK.
Many famous artists and bands play at university and college venues too.

Apart from a wealth of clubs and societies on campus, you can also visit
traditional museums, contemporary art spaces and galleries in most cities.
The UK also has a vibrant theatre and performing arts heritage, maintaining
both traditional plays and musicals, and encouraging new and alternative
productions.
