Anyone get a reply for business management yet?

Well I got my Business and Economics offer in mid Nov, so I guess they must have been giving some business school offers out. But scottish unis are known to give late responses, so don't give up

When do Edinburgh normally push out their offers for UK applications? I understand it's faculty based but, based on previous years if anyone had any insight?

Thanks

Applied for Philosohy and Mathematics mid-December and still haven't heard back. It's annoying because it's the only uni that hasn't gotten back to me yet. I'm Hoping to hear soon

Just curious, as someone interested in both St Andrews and Edinburgh, why do you want to transfer?

Just curious, as someone interested in both St Andrews and Edinburgh, why do you want to transfer?
I want to transfer mainly because I miss my home and I believe Edinburgh has more and better facilities than St Andrews would.

I don't want to be biased here nor be influential, but I believe St Andrews is only high in rankings because:

1) It's an old university and the first one built in Scotland
2) A member of the Royal Family attended there. i.e. Prince Williams

The tables don't really give you an idea what it's like academically. I'm currently doing straight second year Chemistry and lemme just say there are a bajillion things I can say about it but I'll point out a few things which I have noticed:

1) They REALLY expect you to learn in a self dependant manner - therefore, explains the brevity of the lecture notes. ( I cannot emphasise this more)

2) When asking for help in a lab sessions, almost all of the demonstrators do NOT know what's going on and when you do ask for help, one demostrator advises you to do one thing and the other advises you to do something else.

3) Marking for lab reports is NOT consistent.

4) Edinburgh's library is TRIPLE the size of the St Andrews Main library - the St Andrews library is usually tense and has less seats for students who want to study there.

Maybe I was just unlucky last semester but it really screwed up my grades and so I want to repeat the year in Edinburgh. I went to see King's Building the other day and it's realllly big and amazing. I think for sciences, Edinburgh would be slightly better because it provides more facilities for the sciences than St Andrews, considering it is a smaller town. Also, since I would be living at home, I won't have to be worrying about rent hehe XD.

Just found out this thread is a thing!

I'm a Scottish Student with an Unconditional offer for Electrical and Mechanical Engineering MEng!! Got it a few months ago actually haha!

I noticed that people were talking about accommodation, can you apply before you firm your offer (have to wait on a few more offers before I can accept)? I'm thinking Warrender Park Crest or Warrender Park Road/Spottiswoode Street
