You will be expected to do extensive reading, researching, and be able to express your arguments in a logical and convincing way. Mostly the emphasis is on how to think rather than what to think. Plagiarism is a serious offense in the UK and students need to ensure that they do not copy answers from their friends, books (without providing proper references).
Most institutions will organize orientation days/week for international students where you will be introduced to the institution, class time table, accommodation, health, and money matters. We recommend that you arrive at your institution in time to attend this orientation as it will help you settle in faster.
