Arriving in Scotland
Studying in the UK can take a lot of planning and patience throughout the application process. But once the seemingly endless waiting game to depart for the UK is over, a new and exciting year long adventure is waiting for Master’s students!

Starting your Master's is a big step and is an exciting new chapter in your life, but the work and stress that can come along with it can be demanding at times!

It is very easy to have a fun time in the UK, and it is even easier to do it while spending lots of money.

One of the biggest most potentially embarrassing differences in Canadian versus British English is the use of the term “pants”.

In the UK, pants refers to underpants and only underpants. Trousers. The word you are looking for when referring to your longer leg coverings is trousers. Just keep practicing and you’ll get the hang of it. Moreover, you also shouldn’t be offended if someone asks you for a rubber. They need an erasure to fix a written mistake, they aren’t propositioning you for something else.
