    I read some where that Glasgow is 3 mill in debt. Anyone know why this is, or what effect it has if you're a student there.
    thx.

    I didn't know the exact figure, but it's true the uni is in debt. It doesn't really have any effect on students - they're trying to persuade some lecturers to take early retirement and generally asking departments to save money wherever they can.

    Some of their courses are heavily oversubscribed so when it comes to honours years not everyone is allowed to continue.

    yeah it is in debt but then 3-4 years ago so was Strath now we are rolling in money. There is more builders on campus than students these days. Its all swings and roundabouts.

    Bloody Hell Clarence, i think you may actually be the one person on the planet who loves Glasgow more than me, almost every post iv seen of yours says something about how good the place is (quite understandable in my book).

    Ach well, long may it continue!

    I guess people are only jealous then when they keep moaning about how Glasgow sucks. (Surprisingly, most of them don't even live there so..)
