As a fairly typical English town, albeit a picturesque one with a world famous university, Oxford living (outside the town center) is sedentary and peaceful. Property prices are fairly high, though, as is the cost of living, so be prepared to spend a little more than you would in many other UK towns. The economy here is fairly standard with many service and business managerial positions available, although the renowned Oxford University employs over 15,000 people and hosts many more students, giving the town a youthful, dynamic vibe, which is great news for the younger, party-loving expat.
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Dubai or Jeddah, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
Expat living in Oxford can prove tough to adjust to, just like when relocating to any country. English society, although very multicultural in some places, can be somewhat reserved and distant compared to other countries in Europe or the USA and the weather really can be famously grey and rainy for a lot of the year. Ease your traditional English weather worries, then, with InterNations and our community of friendly and welcoming expats. Cinema and movie clubs, an outdoor and hiking society, and dinner evenings are just some of the activities on offer in our Oxford Community, next to the larger InterNations Official Events. So if you're finding British life difficult to get used to, why not join InterNations today? Within minutes you could be in contact and exchanging information, or simply sat back and relaxing, with a like-minded expat, who can help take some of the stress away from your move.
