Are you ready to return home?
Updated: Sep 5, 2019
Returning to your home country can cause all sorts of conflicting emotions. In fact the word 'home' may apply more to the UK now that you've lived here and going back isn't something you're necessarily looking forward to. If you're feeling like you just want to be in both places at once with all of the friends and family all together, then you're not alone.
Friends International have experience in helping students prepare for returning back home and the various aspects of reverse culture shock, processing different values and pressures and understanding that no matter how long you've been in the UK, you will have changed.
Would you like someone to talk to about returning home? Book on to our next event in a local home with a meal and a discussion around the topic of returning home on eventbrite (click here).
We also have staff and volunteers with a range of experience of living in other cultures who have experienced the varying emotions that come with returning home. If you think this would be helpful, get in touch, we'd love to help!
