Abstract:
Overall this mixed methods research provides a unique insight into the experience of students studying abroad in the UK. It highlights cultural differences in student's perceptions of academic life and how these relate to subjective well-being. Physical activity was seen as part of a wider 'lifestyle' where not only structured exercise was valued but also more unstructured physical activity, particularly outside in a social environment. Adaptation and associated stressors are common but ebb and flow over the course of the academic year.
