I'm seriously considering applying to McGill university in Canada for autumn 2017, university seems great, Montreal seems like a good city and I'm not daunted by the prospect of living so far away as I'm spending 9 months next year backpacking round North America, Australia and NZ and have always been fairly independent anyway.
What I'm interested in is how easy people have found it to integrate into student life in North America as a British person, I wouldn't want to be in a separate international students community at all and am wary of that being a possibility. My instinct would be that as a British student I'd have an easier time integrating than others as the cultural and language barriers aren't so much of an issue, but I could be wrong.
If anyone has any first/secondhand experience of being a British international student in North America I'd be really grateful if you could share...
