We recognise that starting university and moving countries is a big adjustment, and we want to reassure you that we're here for you throughout this. Below you'll find some useful resources that will help you to settle into living in Manchester.
You may notice big differences between the way things are here to back home. This is sometimes known as 'culture shock' and is a common experience. Check out this video of some of our students talking about how they experienced this when they first moved to Manchester. If you're finding the adjustment especially hard, remember that there's always support available.
We know that it can feel daunting to access additional support sometimes. Some students have voiced concerns that they think accessing support could negatively impact them in the future, but this is absolutely not the case. This worry shouldn’t stop you from accessing any support that you might need and you are always doing the right thing in reaching out.
