Live with english students. There will be plenty of opportunity to get to know other international students. This way you can have the best of both worlds. You'll want to buy a wetsuit and go surfing. Make sure you get a Int'l drivers permit so you can rent a car and check out the country side and seaside villages. Take the ferry to Cornwall and hike the coastal path to the next town, have a pint and enjoy the view. Also: Jelly Jazz at the Quay Club and some special events on Union Street. Don't be afraid of Union Street, just take a cab. Start visiting the surrounding towns in Cornwall/Devon early - there is a lot to see. Join a club, but be sure they are organised - many are not. The ski club is pretty good. They meet every week in a pub and get together for at least one big ski trip. Football is well organised and I think the SUBA club is getting better (thanks to Seb, or course).
