Everyone in our year who wanted to visit Strathclyde got taken up by the school the day after their "official open day", I wasn't very impressed. Maybe it was just the people who were showing us around and talking to us, but they seemed very rude and acting like we were a huge burden for a measly hour. Their Geography course seemed very restrictive and they rejected me anyway, but I ended up getting offers from universities far more respected for Geography so it all worked out in the end. I love the city of Glasgow though
Stirling campus is very nice, but I absolutely hated the city and the people didn't seem very friendly - but feel free to prove me wrong, we didn't explore it for very long.
Glasgow Caley is actually quite a nice, modern campus. I attended the Computing/Engineering applicant day with my boyfriend and they seemed to spend more time slagging off other unis than actually telling you about the course. I'm not into Engineering at all but they were demonstrating a piece of software and the guy telling us about it said, "ONE uni in Glasgow actually doesn't use this software at all, and only teach the theory of it." Er, very good. He also tried to tell us that an Engineering graduate from Caley was chosen over one from Cambridge for a job, which I find a bit hard to believe...
