    Oh dear, there's lots of them. Worry not!

    The International Society is run by two paki guys. There are a lot more indians/paki in postgraduate courses, but if you are willing to mix and befriend everyone you should be fine in undergrad as well. As you might know, in Scotland the trend is not as in England to move as far as you can from home town, but to stay in local unis, so there are lots of dundonians, commuters from Fife, Perth, Forfar and whatnot.

    Take a look at this page http://www.facebook.com/internationa...?v=photos&sb=0 and may cultural fitting-in be your last worry.

    Where are all those, except Chinese? I've yet to met them.... And generally, for OP's info, Chinese people are usually here through and for exchange programmes.

    you're welcome and thanks I guess. You plan on coming this way ?

    Edit : Oh, wait, was that some sort of weird irony? We are snowed in up here and my brain is starting to slow down as well. The stuff you put in bold was said in the nicest way, I fancy the diversity here, and the two paki guys as well, they do an awesome job with the society.

    I say Korean/Japanese..etc because I can't tell the difference between them.They may well all be Chinese.I spent 9 weeks trying to figure out what kind of Chinese a guy in my tutorial class was...It turns out he was Chinese.

    For the town though there does seem to have been an an influx of Chinese recently as well as swarms of Poles.

    What do you mean what kind of Chinese? I doubt you can spot Cantonese and Mandarin speakers.

    As for Poles, I think they're all over the UK, not only Dundee in particular.
