Embarking on an educational journey abroad is exhilarating, but the encounter with diverse cultures can also be a source of cultural shock for Indian students.
The distinct lifestyles, customs, and social norms in countries like Australia, USA, UK, Ireland, and Canada can be overwhelming.
PFEC Global acknowledges these intricacies and is here to guide parents and students through this transformative journey, ensuring a balanced acclimation to new cultural environments.
Cultural shock arises from the encounter with unfamiliar societal norms, behaviours, and everyday practices. It might manifest as anxiety, confusion, or homesickness.
