Getting even little things wrong can have a devastating effect on confidence in a new place.

Which is why we partner with a specialist in cross- cultural training: so you can be sure that whether you’re shy or outgoing, artistic or sporty, like to dine out or simply want to enjoy our famous British pub culture, you will have the right social and cultural support to get the most out of every opportunity.

It’s all about helping you ‘fit in’… with communication comes integration and friendships are born.
