Climate and clothing
The weather in the UK can be very variable: wet and windy one day, warm and sunny the next. The warmest weather is between May and September, but it can rain at any time of the year.
It is a good idea to bring a selection of light clothes that you can wear in layers (that way you can add or remove layers depending on temperature), as well as some warm outer clothing and a waterproof coat or umbrella. Hats, gloves and scarves, as well as thick socks, are essential in the winter but can be bought at a reasonable price in the UK.
You may find that your accommodation has limited storage space, so do not bring too much clothing, you will be able to buy more suitable clothing once you arrive. Students usually dress informally for class. You may want to bring with you a suit or dress for more formal occasions, as well as a national costume as students often organise international events, where they learn about different cultures.
