UK plugs have three flat pins, unlike the rest of Europe. Please ensure that you bring a UK adaptor plug with you for your laptop, hairdryer etc!
The weather in the UK is quite varied and changeable. Locals often carry both sunglasses and an umbrella! You can expect warm temperatures during the summer, but cooler than those on the continent. Winter is less severe in Portsmouth than the north of the UK, but we have had several days of snow each winter for the last three years. Please pack sensible clothing (or ask the Study Abroad/Exchanges Team for shopping advice on arrival!!)
