When we asked people why foreigners move to UK, they responded...

"Sheffield is U.K's hub for call centers, so people move here for job opportunities. Also, the university has a lot of foreign students," said another expat in Sheffield, UK.

"England offers a range of attractive opportunities for expats, including excellent job prospects and a high standard of living. There is a diverse culture and vibrant atmosphere, with a range of interesting activities to discover, including theatre, festivals and galleries. English is the dominant language, so there is an ease of communication amongst English speakers. The country also boasts excellent infrastructure and reliable public transport systems, making travel around the country and to other destinations easy. Additionally, England’s stunning scenery and countryside makes it a great place to explore and relax," wrote a member who made the move to UK.
