a thorough understanding of their subject but also with analytical abilities
and problem-solving skills that are much prized by employers in later

educational institutions in the UK understand the need to make international
students feel at home and go out of their way to ensure this. Many universities

In addition, counselling and special advice services are always available,
while student unions and societies for foreign students also offer valuable
support. But the best cure for homesickness - and the one that always
works - is simply for students to get out and get involved with UK life
in all its unique character, colour and diversity.
