    Anyone now anything about the Cairncross house accommodation? noisy area, or dead, kinda want something in the middle? Any idea how many people share the showers and tiolets? please tell me its not like 25 or something ridiculous lol.. and yeah just any information about it that isnt already on the glasgow website? Thanks
    Don't know about toilet sharing, but it will likely by 5 or 6 at most. I stayed quite near Cairncross for a while, and its a pretty decent area, about 15 minutes walk from uni and as its just off Old Dumbarton road it's not too quiet. Got a couple of pubs a few mins away and a Tesco Express about 5 mins away that's open til 11pm.

    Thanks, just didn't like the thought of sharing a tiolet with loads of people that had been out that night before lol. But that sounds like a good number. I like the sound of it out of all the ones best i think, hope i get it .. Thanks again

    I think you should base this on the actual style/location/facilities of the accommodation rather than it's social life. You will have an amazing social life and attend lots of parties, regardless of where you stay! You have the library on campus to study when you need to so don't stress about having time to get your work done.

    Queen Margaret - 20 mins from uni - en-suite
    Murano - 25 mins from uni - 10/12 people sharing 2 bathrooms
    Student Apartments - 2 mins from uni - variable no. sharing bathrooms
    Kelvinhaugh - 15 mins from uni - 5 sharing bathroom
    Cairncross - 15 mins from uni - variable no. sharing bathroom

    Have a look on the website http://www.gla.ac.uk/undergraduate/a...denceprofiles/

    Would not recommend the catered halls at Wolfson, as these are a bus ride away from uni, and as they are close to the vet school, are mainly occupied by vet students.

    Would also not recommend Victoria Hall, as this is a longer bus ride, and is mainly full of students attending Caledonian university. However it is close to the city centre, if you would rather be there.

    There's a comparison of facilities here:

    My daughter got her info pack from Glasgow today, for any 2012 appplicants it states they are redeveloping the course. ''PBL will continue to have a central role but will be reinforced by additional lectures,clinical teaching and teaching in clinical specialities''.
    I am unsure about Glasgow (for medicine) as I have read alot of negatives, but my daughter wants to go, even though she had a choice. Hopefully I will feel reassured on applicants day next week.

    Most from this site! A DIY course, not enough input/advice from staff. Do not have enough knowledge myself, so will chat to the current students during the tour.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much. Glasgow have a new Dean in place, and lots of the changes are aimed at helping students feel more supported (which is one of the risks with PBL unfortunately). Also, there will be more physiology/anatomy included in the first year, combating the idea that Glasgow Doctors make poorly trained surgeons.

    Glasgow also encourage feedback from students every week by filling out a questionnaire about how they found their PBL/tutorial sessions. Changes are based on these feedback questionnaires and are implemented fairly quickly.

    All the students I know that go to Glasgow like it, though I know a good few failed the course altogether. If your daughter is the self-driven and self-motivated type, she will fair well in Glasgow.

    I just wish I'd gotten in :'(
