Student Safety >

For some students it may be your first time living away from home and for others this may be combined with the first time living in an unfamiliar country.

By international standards, the UK is a safe country, wth low levels of violence and street crime. In a recent survey by the British Council, only a very small proportion of students had ever experienced a crime and the overwhelming majority felt that the UK is a safe place to be.

The British Council provide practical advie and guidance about living and studying in the UK:  British Council Living & Studying in the UK Guides.

Police Scotland’s web site also provides student safety advice and information:  http://www.scotland.police.uk/whats-happening/campaigns/2015/student-safety-2015/
