    So they mentioned that when we are on placements we could be at any hospital/surgery in the city...how far is that true and how easy is it to travel around? do they give advice on how to get places...I'm from quite a small city where it is impossible to get lost and I basically know Glasgow city centre and thats it
    Glasgow University's reach is from Ayrshire to Lanarkshire. The west of Scotland has the most hospitals in its deanery and most of them are teaching hospitals. Great for variety, but annoying if you have to spend a morning in Crosshouse. Fortunately, in first and second year you go on these visits with at least 3 other people - so hopefully one of you can conquer google maps! In 3rd year the year group gets split. 60% go to the new Southern hospital and 40% go to the Glasgow Royal infirmary. Both are easy to find =]

    What's accommodation like in first year? I live quite close to Glasgow (less than an hour away) but would rather move to Glasgow
    Yeah I was the same. Defo move out.

    Student accommodation is shite no matter where you go. But this gives it a sense of community, a "we are all in it together" type thing.

    As with any uni, glasgow has the typical "party halls" and the other more tame ones.

    I read somewhere that the problem with PBL is the fact that while you go in depth with stuff and tend to remember it for longer than lecture based teaching after exams, the problem tends to be that when a course is entirely PBL, that the course doesn't cover as much material...therefore would like to think a combination of both sets us up quite well.
    The problem is when they don't give you learning outcomes. Glasgow has started giving students these at the end of each week, so it's sorted.

    Glasgow has a subway, decent bus and train system. You're fine getting anywhere in scotland from Glasgow.

    Your placements extend from Glasgow to south Ayrshire, as the other poster said

    Does anyone know about replying to offers? Is it the same as other degrees? Can I pick one as firm and one as insurance? Or does that not apply to medicine?

    Also, Glasgow have asked me to return my higher results by the 1st of July, but we don't get results till the 9th of August :/
