I have applied to St Andrews University (but this question applies to ANY Scottish University), which I did last October, but I wanted to ask a question as an applicant living in England.
I have discovered that there are in fact two terms at Scottish universities, and not three like English universities have. I wanted to know if this was a big problem/extremely tiring for people studying at St A's or any other Scottish uni? Internationa/EU/RUK students, do you wish that the term dates were shorter so you could go home more often?
My parents are sort of against me going, because they say that the long term dates compared to other unis are going to wear me out and I'm going to want to come home half way through the terms and I won't be able to. Please, would someone tell me if that is the case? Will I hate it?
Thank you so much - any replies are much appreciated!
