Living in Sheffield

Moving to a new city in a new country can be an exciting time in anyone's life. Be prepared for your life and lifestyle to be different from your experience back home.

It is likely that for the first few days and weeks you will find the experience exciting but you should be prepared for some feelings of homesickness and confusion about the way that things are done in the UK. This is entirely normal and is part of the process of adjusting to a new culture.

We hope that the pages in this section of our website will help you with some of the aspects of life in Sheffield which are likely to be different to your previous experience or expectations. Take some time to read through these pages so that you are well prepared for your new life in Sheffield.
