Student Life in the UK
Manners and Behaviour
A country that is quick to embrace the influences of other cultures, for example one of the favourite national dishes is Indian curry, you will find a lot of diversity in the UK especially in its big cities. The British are generally friendly, polite and reserved, with a sense of humour which can sometimes be a bit sarcastic. Whilst there isn’t much formal etiquette in the UK, being polite, punctual and greeting people with a smile will always stand you in good stead.
