  28. How much will it cost? • It's not just the course fees you have to take into account when costing your studies. Think about the cost of accommodation, food and general living too. • MMU scores well in all these respects. Our international fees are competitive. Plus the cost of living in our region is considerably lower than London and many other world cities. • At MMU, you'll also be part of a very large student population. Many shops, restaurants and services offer special student discounts, which all helps to keep costs down!

  29. Here are a few things to know straight away:- • British people are generally relaxed and polite, although they're also quite reserved. This doesn't mean they're unfriendly! • If you're going to be late for a meeting call the person and let them know. • If you're invited to someone's home for a meal, it's customary to take a small gift – or you could invite them to your home in return. • It ‘s a good idea to bring photos of your country, as people will be interested. • If you're invited to a pub but don't drink alcohol, don't worry. Pubs sell non-alcoholic drinks. • Both men and women aged 18 or over are allowed into pubs. There's no waiter service and you normally pay for drinks when you order them. • People in the UK always form polite queues.
