Leaving home to come to University is a major event for any student, but travelling to a new country and adapting to a new environment as well makes this an even bigger transition for new international students.
Any such transition is likely to be a source of stress and uncertainty. Homesickness is normal - everyone will experience it at some point and it will pass, although at the time it might not feel like it.
Acknowledge your feelings and accept them, these feelings will pass. Expect a certain amount of confusion at first, there is such a lot to do and everything is new. Unfamiliar aspects of everyday life may seem strange and unsettling at first. There is nothing wrong with feeling these differences; any period of change takes some time to get used to.
