In the UK, the students are so diverse and friendly. Besides, being there also encouraged you to be a lot more independent and more mature as you are away from home.

ASA is incredibly helpful in terms of helping out with the application process, especially if it is a new thing for you. I found that it was very easy for me to go through the whole process with the guidance that they provide (eg: university application, visa application), as they organize and let you know beforehand of all the things you need.
