Living in the UK - Differences "Young people get drunk – the behaviour would be frightening. "I hate the teenage people with little education, gathering around, holding booze, talking rubbish. "Fighting in the street, drunken hooligan. "Gentle country not true, too many drunk people, terrible young people everywhere."
Living in the UK - Differences I liked the way everyone said please and thank you all the time. We were pleasantly surprised by the politeness and friendliness they encountered. We couldn't quite believe it when a car stopped at a pedestrian crossing for us. I stopped to ask the way and the people asked took them me to the place I wanted to find.
Choosing a University Academic – students are not granted degrees for anything other than their academic ability. Focussed – You will be required to study only the subject that you choose. Single Subject – British degrees are usually only a single subject e.g. Chemistry BSc.
