The UK is one of the most multicultural and developed countries in the world. We are also one of the most popular student countries, and British people have a reputation for being friendly and welcoming to people of all nationalities, race, religion and gender.
When you first arrive, you might notice many differences between your own culture and the British one, from the weather and food, to the way people dress and speak.
