Well, I'm seriously thinking about accepting one of my 2 Aberdeen offers, but I need some help, since I live in Luxembourg and can't just go and have a look at the university.
How are the infrastructures in Aberdeen, I mean, cinemas, pubs and stuff... Isn't it a little small? What can you do there as a student? Is it worth going there?

:confused: :confused: :confused:

Well it's about two and a half times the size of Luxembourg-ville.

I haven't been to Aberdeen in ages, but there's plenty of pubs and a good few nightclubs. I imagine it'll have at least a couple of good cinemas too.

It's the third biggest city in Scotland and is certainly more city than town - although yes, to some extent it is in the middle of knowhere since civilisation pretty much ends at Stirling.

Sarah, there are many students from the EU and most of them like it. It is in the middle of nowhere but abdn has an international airport, some great clubs and pubs and excellent shopping facilities, at least for its size. It's not London but I'm sure there is something to satisfy everyone's taste in terms of entertainment. Also it's a wealthy city of low unemployment and you can feel safe when you get back home from the pub.

Aberdeen is awesome! Belmont street is the heart of it all theres loads of night clubs and pubs, sports facilities are great, and if you do want to get to the middle of nowhere for a wee bit, like for the day up a hill or something then about 10-20 minutes outside the city there is the shire, with hills and fields galore!!

LOL "Well, actually it's the centre of no-where and is where all the people from no-where go on a Saturday night - so it's got some quite good pubs and clubs"

The owner of Bobbins across the street from Kings College must be loaded.

It's not in the middle of no-where! There's loads of places pretty near by, and even the central belt isnt that far away, only a couple of hours. It's better than the bigger cities like Glasgow or Ed cos its small enough for u not to get lost or feel out of ur depth, but big enough to have loads and loads going on with thousands of people. Social aspects are all pretty ace.

yeah, well i flew from vienna to london heathrow, and then by train to canterbury, from canterbury by bus to dover, from dover by train back to canterbury, from canterbury by train back to london kings cross, from there by train to dundee, from dundee back by train to kings cross, from kings cross to london heathrow, and finally from there back to vienna.
so yes, i should have flown........but my god that would have cost me a fortune, ontop i reserved all my train tickets weeks ago, so it was fairly cheap (60 pounds from london to dundee...c'mon :cool: )
