    I haven't lived there but the various people I've known who have, and the several times I've visited, there haven't been many complaints. Some rooms are extremely small (there is one which is literally a converted closet), but that was the only real gripe.

    Plenty of bath and shower rooms, cleaned daily and I never had to wait for one. Food is okay - gets a bit samey after a couple of months but I'm sure it'll be fine for a week. It's really close to everything, right in the centre of town and close to the beach. You'll have a ball.

    Thank you!

    Are the rooms like flats? If so, are the baths rooms in the flats?

    No the rooms are mostly corridors and the bathrooms are in the corridors too.

    I will be coming to study at St Andrews in September and one of my biggest concerns is how far it is from London. Do big firms still come to hold events and is there support in getting internships etc? Does Edinburgh hold many opportunities for work experience? Obviously I gather that will depend largely on the field!

    Of course they do!

    I was wondering if an Oxbridge application would affect the chances of me getting into St. Andrews. After talking to many Oxford students, I realised that quite a few of them had been given an offer at Oxford but been rejected by St. Andrews/Durham. Whereas the students who decide against applying to Oxbridge of a similar calibre seem to have a better success rate at getting accepted by St. Andrews. Due to the early UCAS application for Oxbridge, the other universities have a pretty good idea that that is where you've applied, and I understand that the other unis may not want the reputation of taking Oxbridge rejects. Therefore I was wondering if I'd have a better chance of a St. Andrews offer if I didn't apply to Oxbridge, thanks.

    It won't affect your chances either way at all. Universities don't know were else you've applied to. Yeh they could guess, but ultimately they want the best students possible and so won't care, certainly there is no element of trying to avoid having an oxbridge reject reputation - where else you apply will have absolutely no effect on your chances at St Andrews

    London isn't the centre of the Universe, plenty of graduates here go on to secure big jobs in the city etc.

    I appied to Oxford and was still given an offer by St Andrews so in my experience it didn't affect my application to St Andrews.

    The same for me; I don't think it makes any difference.

    Pretty much every English student at St Andrews applied and was rejected from Oxbridge. It doesn't make a difference.

    I never said everyone. My point still stands: many people get into St Andrews after applying to Oxbridge, therefore the poster should not feel deterred from applying to both.

    Hi,

    I’d appreciate some input regarding the first-year modules for Economics and International Relations.

    1. What’s the format for the 2 hour written examinations in these courses (e.g. problem sets in Economics, essays in International Relations, etc)?

    2. How is the “Course Work” segment of the grade computed in each of these first-year modules (e.g. papers, class participation in tutorials, group projects, written exams, etc)?

    3. How is the “Practical Examination” portion of the grade in the International Relations first-year module determined? More generally, what is a practical examination?

    4. How would you rate the work load, the quality of teaching, and the difficulty of doing well in first-year Economics and International Relations? I read somewhere that a big majority of students score a 2:1 or higher in these courses. Is that true?

    5 Are the large lectures in each course a turn-off? Is it important to attend these lectures?

    Thanks!
