Student Life in England

Fresher’s Week for University 18+

Fresher’s week is the first week of when your university life starts, it is known to be the welcome week. There will be a variety of events, parties and gatherings around this time. It is a very sociable time at university and is probably one of the most exciting time of student's life. This initiation is designed to help you become familiar with new surroundings while having fun and break the ice with new classmates and make friends. However, please remember not to overdo it – you don't want to make a bad first impression, don’t you?

Lunch time

Nearly all of the university and schools that are listed on our site have canteen facilities which offer reasonable price foods. If you do not feel like eating here, England offers student discount to most lunch and dinner type places. Reasonable priced places to grab lunch are the companies such as Subway, Pret A manger, Eat, McDonalds and many more. If the student is confused with where to go for lunch, a good piece of advice is to type on google where to go for lunch. Google will also provide a map in order to make the journey easy to follow.

Things to do other than studying lots

In England there is lots to do. There are cinemas, shopping malls, restaurants, in-door swimming pools, gyms and lots of night-clubs. Many of these activities are supported with student discount which the university will provide further information about when you get there. The English love hot drinks and a cake so you will also find lots of quirky cafes to go to with friends or to relax and study.

Shopping in London

London has its reputation as one of the best places in the world for shopping. Massive shopping malls such as Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Hamleys and Harrods will impress you with its variety of famous and emerging brands and, as well as an amazing selection of restaurants, leasure & beauty spots, cinema and other entertainments. And of course we coudn't to mention two major London fashion streets - Oxford street and Regent street, hosting both luxury fashion houses and mass market retailers. However, be prepared weekends there can be extremely busy, and if you prefer more quite and relaxed shopping we would advice you to visit it someday between Monday - Friday, or try other more elegant fashion streets such as Carnaby Street and Bond Street. And don’t forget to visit quirky retail outlets like Dover Street Market, or bargain fashions at London's markets. London shopping is amazing, and you can easily spend an hour, an afternoon or a whole day or weekend browsing shops in the city.
