    Hey People,

    I have a question that concerns me and wanted to get some opinons. I am east asian (vietnamese-american) and deciding if I should attend MMU in Manchester. I am from Southern California and as some of you are aware, have a large east asian population.

    How do the locals (Manchester) view on "east asians". I am affraid that I would feel like an outsider. Or go to places that I would totally feel out of place. I also have the option to go to schoool in Australia. Its still up in the air, any advice, suggestions would be wonderful. Thanks

    We'd probably be more likely to say 'oriental' rather than East Asian in the UK, by the by.

    Manchester is a very diverse city indeed and its minority populations are very much part of the culture. Equally though, I certainly don't think many will actually exclude you from anything because of your race.

    Don't get me wrong - the East Asian population isn't going to be overwhelming - well, probably not as large as you are used to anyway - but there are a good number of exchange students in British universities who come from that part of the world too. I really don't think you have much to worry about.
