    I'm going to study at the University of Glasgow as a school leaver and will be 17 for the first few months. I was wondering whether there are many underage students at the university. Are many students school leavers? Does being under 18 significantly affect your student life or is it nothing to worry about?

    I was 17 when I started studying at Strath, most of my friends were, a lot of people who leave from Scottish schools are. Especially since we can leave after S5. One of my friends was 16!

    But it's nothing to worry about, you can still get into the union at freshers (if they haven't changed the rules I know at Strath we could) we just got a wristband saying we were under 18!

    Also I made most of my friends from socs rather than nights out so it's nothing to worry about

    It's mildly irritating for a few weeks, but you'll forget almost immediately.
