Is it right people are rough, tough,silly, and no sense of humor?

Sorry guys :)

I hear this around from different people and cultures till I experienced this, a British lady who work a teacher in Egypt gave me a negative vibes about living in UK and was silly in her way :\
It would be uncomfortable to face that as I hate people like that, She told me you will discover that by yourself , only negativity in her text messages : ) !!
I had a positive power but she absorbed some.
Guys tell me about it as I'd love to come and take a Master's degree from UK...
Thanks in advance.

In UK everyone is in their own world, no one has time for no one. Its very isolating unless you have a family of your own.
Its a rush rush type of life style with the horrible weather added on top of it.

hahahah WTF! :))
By this way, I'm gonna miss Egypt so much :(
The opposite here, we care about each other more than time or being selfish people !_!

It depends on many factors

Can you explain ? ^^
it's not Physics, I hear this from a long time ago that UK citizens are not friendly, why is that ?
Is this something related to pride?

Negative vibes is different to you being mistreated. First and foremost, I can tell you that even subconsciously, my opinion and hence treatment of people depends on if they have a British accent or not. No, if you come here after 11 years of age, I will always be able to tell that you're not from here. The British mentality is unique, and we won't be able to understand and agree on many things . My ex was Syrian, my ancestors were Russian, I was born and raised in London

Secondly, a lot of people from the MENA region come to the UK, sometimes on false documents claiming to be from areas of conflict, and claim all sorts of financial assistance. Many, not all, never seem to work but reproduce endlessly. A lot of indigenous British people are on waiting lists to get *assistance* with housing - not free housing, assistance to pay for rent on an affordable, comfortable to live in, housing.

My parents have waited for 17 years. I am under the age of 20. There is no way of telling if someone is on a student visa or claiming asylum simply by looking at them, so automatically, being blunt, people have a bad impression of certain nationalities. Working class white Brits will, 9 times out of 10, interact with asylum seekers or average (unqualified) job holders, such as kebab shop workers, cleaners, taxi drivers.

If you plan on permanently moving to the UK (as I see no point in studying in the UK and returning to Egypt, as the salary is the same if you were educated in Cairo or London) then be aware that your kids, if born and raised and surrounded by Indigenous Brits, will be raised with our customs imprinted in them. Short of winning the lottery, I don't (speaking as the chill of immigrants) see much economic prospect for people who come to the country after their teens

If you win the lotto, why on earth would you live in this climate? Then again, you wouldn't need to worry about an education or job in the UK...

Wow , I liked you reply, it's not a normal reply but it's an essay , with my whole respect to you.
First, I'd like to point that salary won't be same in Cairo and London for example in consideration of cost of living.
I wanted to come to be unique in the labor market to study Master degree and hone, develop my skills in English.
So what do you think, should I say in Egypt in my comfort zone area ?

I used to be a Brit but I'm very friendly.
Try ignoring one meeting and forgetting stereotypes or you'll end up hating the whole world.

:) It isn't from my morals to use stereotypes , I always refused them, but when you tell her No, I met in the past some people friendly here and the she replies that we are just friendly when we come to your home, but you will know the reality when you're at our home town !!^^
I was shocked XD
I love friendly people :)
Thanks for your reply

That's me.

I'm as rough as a bear's bum.
I hit people a lot and I'm very rude.
As you see by this post, I'm very silly.
I have no humour I'm aware of, never so much as crack a smile and look at life in the most negative way possible, usually hoping a bus will knock me down and kill me immediately after breakfast so I don't have to face another day on this terrible planet.

I say 'after breakfast' because I don't allow busses in my house and I hate going out on an empty stomach.

The UK has some best universities in the world and do gain qualifications are regarded as gold in world,

I have to be honest with you, for me, I don't like the UK although I am a British citizen I think I have lived outside the country for too long. If I was to go back and study for X amount of years I would go back.

Do you have an idea on where you want to study?

Yes at Sheffield Hallalll

I think we can safely agree that there are xenophobes in every country of the world; the UK is no different.  As for Brits, we don't come from where I now live, I've never had a problem and neither have any of my family.

As some have hinted at earlier, the UK used to provide a social housing and financial support network for those who needed help; the end result was that many people came from abroad to take advantage of what to them, seemed largesse by the Brits - that magnificent "looking for a better life"; the end result of which was an increase in a number of misinformed xenophobes and less support for everybody.

University - you get what you pay for; IMO Sheffield Hallam is not one of the best (it came 27th in terms of last years league table and is aiming at 32nd for the current year).  If the object of coming here is to get a degree that will help you live and work in the UK at the end of it, then you've probably chosen the wrong one.  Of course, it depends on your chosen speciality, but if you come out at the end with a degree in something that is not required in the market-place, then you will probably have just wasted £50,000 and 4 years of your life.

So  can you please advise me I'm going to take a master degree in finance and accounting, and I landed on this university as they provide 50% waiving of international fees from 13k sterling to be 6600 Sterling. Do you mean the college graduates can't find work easily because of its ranking.
Best regards,

Best regards,

So you already have a Bachelors Degree and are looking to develop this further to MSA?  I put it this way (hypothetically); I'm an employer who is recruiting an accountant; I interview lots of people and it comes down to the last 2; both have identical degree's and experience, but one went to Durham, the other Sheffield, I would employ the Durham guy.

You need to consider why Sheffield is offering the financial incentives to overseas students.

If your intention is to finish your MSA, then move on, then perhaps it's not an issue, but there are plenty of people in the UK with degrees who can't get any work in their chosen speciality.

One last point;  IMO, if accountancy is your chosen speciality, then it's far more important to achieve Chartered Status; if you do that, then you can work anywhere in the world.

hey thanks for many of your advises, but currently I work as a Banker with 2 years experience in banking and before it I worked as export specialist..I got many offers from many universities, I submitted for MSc in Banking and Finance..
so What do you think :) ?
Is this good to find a place in the market labor ?!

Thanks and sorry for late reply as I was in work.
regards,

I've had this discussion with somebody else recently.  I don't work in Banking, so I have no relevant experience to pass on.  My only thought is that you are coming from a role, where experience, regulations and contacts are very important, to take time out to go back to Uni.  At the end of the process, will your current employer take you back in an enhanced role (to reflect your new knowledge), or are you going to go back into the marketplace, competing with others who are more current than you?

If you are considering moving out of Finance and into General Business, would an MBA  be a better fit for you (you can do that while still working)?

If you are keen to stay in Finance, you should also perhaps consider the effect Brexit is having on the UK's financial sector, with a diminishing marketplace.
