Why the United Kingdom?
More than 10% of Americans claim UK ancestry, making it an especially popular choice among folks who trace their lineage back to England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, or Wales. Even if you don’t, if you’re looking for a new home that’s not a huge culture shock, you could do much worse than the United Kingdom. If English is your preferred language, you’ll be able to jump right into a new job, social scene, or school (although you may wanna ask how to pronounce Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch). Like in the US, there are two sides to many issues. For example, you’ll have access to the National Health Service, but may have long waits for some appointments. You’ll have great protections as a local employee, but fight an uphill battle for a work permit. And you’ll need to choose not only between four dramatically different countries, but also a wide variety of towns and regions. Be sure to review how Brexit will affect your ability to scoot around Europe for work or play.
