General Cultural Information354
This document has been prepared for you to read before you leave for England, and to refer to during your time there. It gives you information about English customs and describes some points that may be different from your own culture. Part of the fun of coming to live or study in another country is observing and learning about the culture and customs of its people. We don’t want to spoil the surprise for you but we do understand that it can be useful to know how other people will expect you to behave, and will behave towards you whilst you’re away from home. This can avoid awkward misunderstandings for both you and the people you meet and make friends with! We hope that your stay in England will be thoroughly enjoyable and we very much look forward to welcoming you at St Giles College.
