Our Culture Shock Toolkit

Culture shock describes the impact of moving from a familiar culture to one that is unfamiliar. All sorts of factors contribute to culture shock, such as a change in climate, different food, rules of behaviour that seem strange and hard to understand, and being away from your familiar support network. Studying in another country can be a stressful experience; even if it is something you have planned and prepared for!

Our culture shock toolkit is an interactive resource which can help you prepare for adjusting to life in the UK and to anticipate some of the differences you might encounter in the UK.

See our video guide to enrolling yourself on the course via My Studies, or email us (orientation@brighton.ac.uk) with your student number and we will enrol you on the course.

Read about culture shock on the UKCISA website.
