    Do they often hang out together, or are the British simply tolerant but prefer to hang out with other British students (or find they have more in common with them)? How often do they or you hang out with international students, what do you think about it and what does it take for them to be accepted? By international, I include both Asian and EU students.

    I've seen lots of people hang out with international students they're pretty good about it. It's uni not high school we're all adults get along etc.

    Interesting, I was just thinking about this
    I go to Imperial and from my experience the overwhelming majority of British students hang out with other Brits, but I think that's mainly down to the cultural differences and the language barrier (International students find it easier to socialise with others who speak their language). hopefully not plain racism

    I felt it was the other way round. Not all but mainly Chinese students would segregate themselves. Maybe it was a language or cultural barrier. But I made friends with other Asian students specifically Indonesia. Other than that all the international and British nationals got along. It didn't/doesn't matter where you're from.

    My uni was incredibly international and to be international felt just as common as being from Shoreditch.

    At my old uni us Brits tried to be friendly with the Chinese students but many of them just didn't speak good enough English. Other International & EU students were accepted fine.
