The international student’s guide to UK education: Unlocking university life and culture
With the latest statistics issued by the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA, 2012) indicating that the number of students participating in Higher Education courses in the country may be as high as 428,225, and rising, Hyde’s contribution seems particularly well timed. Whilst the book has few academic pretentions, in his introductory chapter the author does explain to the reader that it is written with the intention of “Developing your understanding of how you understand yourself and understand your reactions to these various layers of experience” (p. 2). Thus Hyde succeeds in positioning the text firmly within a Kolbian (Kolb, 1984) ambit of experiential learning rather than as a simple self-help book.
