Moving out for the first time, I need advice.

    • Thread Starter

    Hello there

    I've recently turned 18 and will be moving abroad for studies to Wales.
    I grew up in a nutshell basically, never really ventured out on my own until now, my parents are rather over-protective and I don't even know how to take a bus! (buses are not a popular mean of transport in the Middle East).

    As a foreign student I can seize the opportunity to adapt to the world on my own and learn to explore and experience new possibilities I suppose. That's one of the reasons that this shift is important to me.
    I have to admit I am very nervous. I don't know too much about Cardiff city and will find it challenging having to get by on my own.

    It would be very helpful if you could lend me some advice. Public Transport, part time job, legal matters, interacting with other students (I'm a shy and introvert person), student life in general or any other tips you can provide.

    Thank you so much

    Don't mention the football team and you'll be fine. However, if you are faced with this, it is compulsory to say 'Tan out, Trollope out'.

    You need to refine some of your other questions to make them less general.
