In a few words
"I think that, although they try to cater for all backgrounds, they don't cover them properly. They tend to focus on one or two groups in particular but don't exactly hinder other groups who decide to create a society or club etc. They also have a buddy system for international students so that they can have somebody to talk to and explain certain things to them if they don't understand. This is also helpful as it means they have someone to show them around and help them become more included within both the social and educational aspects of uni. However, this doesn't always work and sometimes international students still seem to sit on the outside when it comes to social activities."
