Cultural Integration at CREST

Ref: C2527912

Living in a new culture can be a positive, stimulating experience. It can also be very challenging. Some people have described moving to a new culture as feeling a bit like being a fish out of water! It is natural that most people will experience a period of transition, which is often known as culture shock, while they get used to their new surroundings. On this course you will be informed about what to expect from the UK culture and given some ideas on how to settle down in the UK.
