Tips for International Students Moving To the UK

| 17/03/2014 | 6 Comments

Most international students aiming to live in the UK and study there often underestimate the fact that there are some major differences to deal with, compared to their country of origin.The following tips are aimed to help you as much as possible before and after you set foot in the UK:

  • You should begin by carefully planning your arrival in the UK. Have you done your job right, planning for the trip between the airport and your university? In my universities in the UK you will have a chance to enlist help as well as subsidised transfer arrangements for students such as you who need to travel from abroad. You should make sure you contact the International Office at your university for more details and information on the subject.

  • You should also exchange money for local currency or a prepaid cash card before you step onto the plane. You should also keep in mind that most shops in the UK won’t accept £50 notes and you will likely have to have smaller notes for bus travel, no larger than £5. This will allow you great flexibility when you arrive, without having to deal with exchanges once on UK soil.

  • Pack clothing for all weather as you prepare your belongings. You have likely heard that UK weather is often gloomy and that it changes just as often. You should make sure you have a good deal of warm clothes, regardless of the season you’re travelling in. Always make sure you check the weather before you travel as well, preparing for it ahead of time.

  • Make sure you attend your university’s freshers week, as it will help teach you a lot of the basics you will need to know as you explore it. They will give you more in

    ormation about the city you’ll be living in as well as any details you may want to know surrounding the university students and other details. The freshers week also has the freshers fair, which is usually held on campus, showcasing any university clubs you may join, allowing you to expand your network of social contacts if you feel like doing so. You will also have a chance to get in touch with the NUS (National Union of Students), which will give you access to a huge number of discounts in over a hundred countries around the globe as well as local university events.

  • You will also need a viable UK phone number to work with. You can have a UK sim card and phone number ready on your first day with a bit of work. It will be an easy way of keeping in touch with your new contacts at the university as well as keeping in touch with family and friends at home. Some programmes allow you to obtain a sim card with credit before you set foot in the UK, so take advantage of that before you arrive.
