    Stirling is quite strong in social sciences, so I'm looking forward to it

    I just wanted to get away from Finland (I'm constantly afraid of getting stuck somewhere haha) and I have friends studying in Scotland, so it seemed somehow natural. I can't wait to leave!

    I don't know yet - I still need to wait for the official translation of my graduating certificate so my conditional offer can be changed to an unconditional :/ I should get it in a couple of weeks, though...

    But I think I'll apply to Geddes as my first and AKD as second choice. I just want the cheapest one really

    How about you?

    I applied for and accepted a place in Geddes Court. Unfortunately, money is an important factor for me too, so I decided to choose the cheapest one... but I think it will be good, I look forward to it btw. I would like to find a part-time job beside uni, to cover at least a part of my costs.

    Yeah Geddes doesn't look bad, of course it has a lot of people living there but you know, I personally don't mind. Seems nice enough!

    I've been thinking of getting a job as well, at least for the summer, mostly because I really don't want to have to move all my stuff to Finland and back.

    Oh and I forgot to ask you back! Why did you decide to study in Scotland?
