What is the attitude of UK students towards international students?Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
Generally very positive imo
no, UK students do not reject international students but i won't lie to you: in my experience international students do tend to stick together, i think just cause they have 'that' in common. also a lot of kids in my class came from the same country, so they tended to befriend each other. i'm pretty sure i was friends with one fellow Canadian specifically because we could reminisce.
i don't know about the accents but i think it's just something we all deal with and pretend politely to understand when sometimes we don't. you'll find not all british accents easy to understand all the time either. doesn't stop you from being friends.
I suppose I’d assume if they weren’t EU that they were pretty rich paying 20-30 grand per year. But that wouldn’t make me not talk to them. I’m happy to talk with anyone who talks to me if they’re a nice person.
It seems if anything it’s the other way round where international students tend to stick with people from their own country, rather than British people refusing to talk to them.
