    Just wondered how many postgraduate students (MSc/PhD/ - or similar) are on these forums? Any other postgraduates living in halls on campus?

    Ah, nice! I'm from Glasgow, so even more local! I'm in Lord Thomson Hall. You planning on heading out during freshers? Where was your undergrad?

    I possibly might! I haven't really made much plans but would be good to meet people!

    I studied at RGU, just completed a course in mechanical engineering. Will you be out and about during freshers?

    In bruntsfield, pretty neat as you can get both 45 and 34 while avoiding all the centre of town traffic. Yeah PhDs tend to take a while to define - I only "finalised" my objectives and research gap a couple of weeks ago, took me about 11 months, hehe. What will your degree be in though, i.e. what subject area?

    Well, I actually did my undergraduate studies at HW as well, so in a month's time I will have spent five full years out here. I lived in Edinburgh for two years prior to starting my studies, but am originally from Sweden. I still stayed on campus for my first year, but being a couple of years older than the average student made this frustrating at times :P This may well be different when you're a PG though, as I believe you'll be housed in separate halls with other PG/mature students.

    Ahh okay, other side of campus to me, then! Are you going to the PG cheese & wine event during Freshers? If so, I may just see you there.

    Sweden! Awesome I've always wanted to go there, I like the Scandinavian countries

    Yeah I did my Masters at HW too, so I wasn't there for as long as you. I've got a bit of a flavour of what the uni is like, but I'm hoping to go to freshers stuff to meet new people as I don't really know anyone there just now.

    I probably will be at the cheese and wine, how will I know you're you?

    Hey guys, I'm going to be a postgrad at HW this year too, so might meet some of you during freshers week etc. I'm from the Borders but been in Edinburgh/Glasgow over the last few years. Going to be doing an MSc in Petroleum Engineering at HW, and (I think) staying in Leonard Horner halls.

    Hi all, I'm going to be starting a PhD in Psychology at Heriot-Watt. I live in Glasgow and am going to be travelling through to uni, but just wondered where you all got information on Freshers events etc? I've received nothing from the uni except a registration email saying 'you may have already received a welcome pack', which I haven't received! Is that where you got info on what's on? Anyway, looking forward to getting started and to meeting other students
