    Hello, I am a foreign student, but staying in the UK for summer. I figure it would be better to stay and pursue all the things I couldn't do during the semester(earning to dance, a new language, volunteer etc) because while going home might be more comfortable, I would spend so much money getting there I would have a pretty lame holiday anyway.

    I expect to get lonely at some point, especially since my girlfriend finished her course and is leaving the country for good, and my friends are leaving.

    Do many international students stick around(Manchester)? Where can you meet people during the summer? What is there to do?

    I saw threads on travelling, and while I am a big advocate of doing things by yourself if you want to, I think I could use some good company if I had to travel. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Doing an internship is the only good reason to stay here over the summer.
