About Us

Welcome to Britannia Blog! I’m Tarek Mahmud, and like you, I wasn’t always familiar with the ins and outs of life in the UK. In fact, I arrived as an MSc student in 2020 with zero knowledge of navigating this fascinating country.

Since then, I’ve embarked on a crash course in all things British, from the intricacies of mortgage applications to mastering the art of the “jump card” (don’t worry, I’ll explain!).
