This book was written for high school and college students interested in studying at a university or other educational institution in Great Britain or Ireland. The book seeks to guide students through the entire study abroad experience. It begins with the university selection process, and covers such concerns as application procedures, transfer of course credit, transportation, what to pack, required documents, insurance, housing, and banking. The book also addresses academics and university life, social and cultural issues, communication, sports, and entertainment and the media. Five appendices include a complete listing of study abroad resources; addresses for Irish and British universities; a large glossary covering English, Cockney, Welsh, Scots, Irish, Irish Gaeilge vocabulary and slang; a calendar of major British and Irish holidays and events; and the tube, rapid transit, and motorway maps.
