A Chinese student's guide to British life

By FreshSocial 07 Aug 2017

There are many things I have learned from my own experiences in the UK as an international student...

The majority of international students choose to study in the UK to successfully complete a degree but also to experience (and understand) British culture and make local friends.

Here are some things you could try to really experience the British way of life:

  • Try different food

    Trying traditional British food is a perfect chance for you to understand a new place and its culture. Be sure to try these classic British meals: full English breakfast, bangers and mash, beef Wellington, cottage pie, fish & chips, a pasty, pie & mash, and Sunday roast.    
  • Get involved in a public event

    There are a variety of public events in the UK, such as Gay Pridethe Colour Runsummer music festivals and other colourful festival activities. Don’t hesitate to get involved in a special event, just have fun and enjoy it! 
  • Watch football

    Football is considered an important symbol of British culture. If you're a football fan, why not go to watch a game in a stadium? There are lots of choices waiting for you. For example: the famous England team and Manchester United

When in doubt, there are always fun events put on in Fresh's accommodation that you can get involved in and meet British and/or other international students just like you...

Now it's time for you to start your adventure in the UK!
