Living in the UK

Thursday, March 31, 2011

Most of those seeking to study in UK actually looks forward to living in UK permanantly.  But what is it really like to live in UK?

There is a very wide mix of cultures in the UK. In London, for example, there are foreign communities from most parts of the world. Consequently British people are very tolerant to foreign visitors, and respect their freedom to have different opinions and beliefs. People in the UK feel free to express their own opinions on government, politics and religion and therefore you should not expect people to agree with you all the time.

The UK is a relatively safe country. The police do not usually carry guns, and there are strict controls on the ownership of weapons. As in all countries of the world, petty crimes exists. There are pickpockets in busy areas, so hold on to your belongings carefully. There are not many insects, snakes or dangerous animals in the UK. There is very little risk of earthquakes, hurricanes or other natural disasters, although flooding sometimes occurs in low areas. As in many other parts of the world, there is some risk of terrorist attack.

The British weather is moderate. In general, the summers are not too hot, and the winters are not too cold. Days are short in the middle of Winter (it gets dark before 4pm in December), and long in the middle of summer (it remains light until after 10pm in June). There tends to be more rain in the west of the country, and more sunshine in the south.
