For those of you who are considering studying in the U.K. at some point in your future, take the time to read this.
This is really important.
This is an international student’s worse nightmare.
To look at UK universities go here: educationuk.org [or google Education UK]. Do some research and see what schools you like. Then contact the international students office of those unis, they are there to help you with the applying process and stuff.
And YES. Loans is no problem, as long as the university is approved by the US Financial Aid program. Usually they would let you know.
And don’t worry even students who are from the UK take out loads - esp with tuition tripling in price.
This isn’t meant to come off as mean or anything but it is true.
I’ve noticed that students from the Asian/Indians backgrounds only hang out with those from the same backgrounds. I suppose it is the cultural thing of sticking together but it also kind of sucks because it makes it harder for me to try and friend them.
I am the only “westerner” in my flat so the others are either Asian/Indian. And we say hi and whatever but we never really talk because they are busy talking with those who speak the same native language as themselves.
It just kind of sucks because I don’t have any roommates that I can just walk into their room and start talking and stuff.
I thought the whole point of going abroad was to try and interact with people who are different from your normal standard you find at home????
What is the point of trying to iron out your English if you don’t use it?
