Staying safe in the UK
For many of you, this may be your first time living away from home in an unfamiliar country. Just as you would do in your home country, it is important to keep yourself safe and this guide from the British Council is designed to help you prepare for your stay here and give you practical advice about living and studying in the UK. The guide highlights some of the health, safety and security issues you may need to be aware of, offers sensible advice, and lists organisations to contact if you or someone you know needs help or support.
Rest assured that the county of Devon, where Plymouth is situated, is still one of the safest parts of the UK to live.
