    Have you been to their Open days? Depends on your opinions on their locations, both Aberdeen and St. Andrews are a bit more closed off (not within a big city) whereas Glasgow is in the heart of a city. What do you prefer?

    Family want me to stay in England. I've got a temptation to go to Scotland. Although they say it's my call, I'm in a bit of a dilemma. Anyone else in similar position?

    What are your other uni options? If you prefer the uni in Scotland (due to better course structure/rankings for certain fields/ specialist departments etc...) then pick that uni. don't think of moving to Scotland from England for uni is such a big deal in terms of moving to a completely different country, Scotland has really good transport links so visiting home won't be difficult and the lifestyle in the two countries are very similar. I was confused as to whether to stay in England and go to Manchester or really venture out and go to Glasgow, in the end I chose Glasgow as the course was better there and due to cheap flights I'd technically be closer to home from Glasgow then if I opted to go to my English uni option

    Nice one! I was considering going to Manchester just because it wouldn't involve me leaving England but everything about the Glasgow uni course and also city wise made me realise Scotland was the way to go

    Ha nice, yeah I was considering York and Manchester. The diversity of the Glasgow course was a big factor, and I just couldn't resist throwing myself into something so exciting and new! What are you most looking forward to?

    I'm coming to do Maths. Had an offer at Reading but I felt there was a bigger opportunity for me at Glasgow. And the way the uni system works in Scotland makes the first year for me more of a transition.

    Ah ok nice, my brother is currently at Reading so that's quite odd! Yeah I also like the Scottish system because my interests are so diverse and I want a really rounded knowledge of many things to help with my career goals. What do you mean by 'more of a transition'?
