Culture Shock

Arriving at University can be a very exciting time. You are surrounded by and immersed in a new culture with its own food, language, people and weather. As well as being stimulating and exciting, this experience can also feel overwhelming and lead to feelings of 'Culture Shock'.

This is also a great opportunity for you to expand your horizons and learn about yourself. You can try new things and make new friends. Remember that Culture Shock is a common reaction and can be experienced by anyone, you aren't alone if you feel this way when you start University.
