Not necessarily because the work is a higher level, but also because of curricular differences. Aside from curricular differences between their home country and the UK the teaching styles will probably also differ from the UK (Ramachandran, 2011). The informality that exists between most professors in the UK and their students may be another challenging thing for the student to adapt to....   [tags: studying abroad,culture schock, uk students]
