Just arrived from UK

My husband and I have just arrived in Zurich from the UK, he is going to be working at ETH as a post doctoral researcher and I'm doing an MA in English Literature/Language at UZH, following my BA in English...(my German is not yet good enough to allow me to study much else, sadly, but greatly looking forward to starting the term in September!) Would be very pleased to hear of anyone else doing the same course, or any other UK expats studying at UZH.

Re: Just arrived from UK

I have just moved to Zurich from the UK too. I am working as a pilot over here. Any help or advice on what life in Zurich is like would be nice. I am a regular 28 year old guy and wouldnt mind finding out what this city is all about!

Re: Just arrived from UK

Welcome to both of you.

You'll probably not get many answers to questions in this part of the Forum, so I suggest you look under relevant headings to see if anyone else is already 'here' who is interested in the same sort of things as you are.

There is a sort of meet up in ten days time for those who love British Cheese. It will be held in Rapperswil which is a lovely town at the other end of Lake Zürich. If you went along there you'll meet a few others from the Forum for sure.

Keep your eyes open for other Social Events too. You can either put your name down or, in many cases, just turn up. Make sure you make yourself known to folk though - don't just sneak in and sneak out.

Hope you all get settled in soon.
