    I would recommend you pick up Apple's international adapter kit, which comes with different adapters for different locations.

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Yes, it's safe. Your MacBook is designed to operate on various voltages - from our 120V here in North America to the standard 220-240V found throughout Europe and the UK. You'll just need to make sure you have the correct adaptor for the AC mains.

    Regards.

    Yep, should be fine. Like chscaq said, the MacBook by itself is fine; the only problem is the AC voltage from the wall outlets may be incompatible with the power adapter. The International Kit should do it.

    Where are you going to study in England? We use 240 V 50 Hz over here, but as people have said as long as you get a plug adaptor for your power supply, you should be fine.

    Yep it'll be fine. The voltages are the same throughout Europe and the UK & Ireland. Just a different plug type, so if you just pick up a normal travel adaptor you'll be fine. I've travelled to europe loads with all my electronics and they all work no problem so it will work for you!
