    Living in Saudi isn't that bad, don't worry. But it does depend on the city your moving to (where are you moving to?). Places like Riyadh suck since it's so conservative/strict. Jeddah/Dammam and all are more open and are better to live in.

    You can't attend a uni in Saudi unless you are a Saudi passport holder. I just assumed you're not Saudi? Was the uni called KAUST?

    Nah, it's not. Just do A Levels/IB or whatever here and just go to university abroad. That is what all us foreigners do. Ah, i've heard of it but all I know is that it's a girls only university. Forgot about the Madina one. What I mean't was that you can't study at a public university here. So, you could attend a private uni here so long as you are accepted and are able to pay the fees (which i imagine are very expensive, EDIT: just checked, they aren't too bad).

    It's cool that you live in saudi though, were u born there?
    I am going to do A levels
    Ahh foreigner!! But the point for me is to study there not abroad.
    I have no intention to attend a mixed university though lol, if I did I would have attended one here in the Uk.
    Yeah they must be, oh wells, I'll pay whatever needs to be payed, its no better here,£9000:facepalm:

    Nope, I was born in Copenhagen, Denmark but i've lived here for the majority of my life. Good luck with A Levels. I'll be doing the IB since the A level results at my previous school (the best in Jeddah) aren't the best and I don't want that to screw up my chances of getting into my dream uni.

    Oh, aren't there any girl only unis in the UK? I plan on attending a uni in the US and there are quite a few girls only unis there, i'm considering applying to some of them myself since they seem nice. Checked the fees of the uni out of curiosity and they're only SR 40,000 (around 6500 pounds) which is inexpensive compared to the school fees of International schools here.

    Was it hard moving from there to here, I mean did you get depressed? I've lived here all my life and I'm way too used to the western style life. Saudi and their strict rules appear scary.
    Thanks!! Oh interesting what school was that? Whats your dream uni? All the best for that then, I'm sure you'll ace them.

    None that I know of and I've checked tons of them.
    From Denmark to Saudi to America:eek: aye you got an exciting life girl
    Lol thanks for checking. And indeed its not too expensive. What do you wanna major as? I believe "major" is the term they use in America not sure if you know what I mean lol.

    I honestly can't remember as I was 4. You'll adjust slowly. If you move into a compound, your lifestyle won't differ much from what your used to in the UK. If you live in a compound, you'll most probably live with a lot of Europeans/Americans and can go about having a regular social life since compounds have pretty much everything (pools, halls with events, supermarkets, restaurants etc), it's not so bad. It'll only be an issue if you move into an appartment/villa that isn't located in a compound since you won't be able to access things like a gym, pool, supermarket etc with ease. I live in an apartment so it's really hard for my family but oh well. You'll be fine, honestly, but you'll need to get used to relying on your Dad for transport and staying at home a lot more.

    It's JPGS (won't mention the entire name for security reasons). I've always wanted to go to Georgetown and Duke university and Inshallah i'll get in if I continue to do well in school.

    My life isn't that exciting trust me. I'm Somali American and have lived in the US for a year before moving here. Moving there shouldn't be too much of a culture shock since I travel to Europe/America every summer, i'm used to the Western life style too I'm honestly not too sure but it'll probably be either maths, biology/chemistry, economics or finance/accounting. Need to decide whether i'm more interested in a science/business related career. How about you? And yes, you've used the correct terminology but it's ''major in'' not ''major as'.

    P.S. the rules aren't too bad. Just wear an abaya and scarf (there are religious police in the malls that come up to you if they realise that you're muslim and force you to wear your head scarf, no joke) when your going out. Don't talk to non-mahram's in public for no apparent reason, don't get rides from non-mahrams etc. See, it's not too bad!
