i finally made up my mind, heading up to st.andrews in Sept.: MA/Hons Int .Rel./Mid-East Stud.
I'd love to share some opinions and doubts with someone whos in the same boat...
Have u guys already sent your accomodation appl. in?
After reading the acc. booklet it seems that it's them who practically decide where you'll be living for the next 4 yrs, is it truly like this or I just got it wrong?

Hello! Yep, I'm going too. Others on this forum who are probably going are ruthie and babyboo. I'm gonna be doing Bsc. Psychology with French (With Integrated Year Abroad).
U r partly right about accommodation, but they only decide where to put you in the first year and after that u can move out of halls if u want to. They pretty much choose where you go in first year, but you can narrow down where you might be put by asking for catered/self-catered, large/small. Also, if you want a single room you can specify that, but that means you won't be in one of the more central halls. Saying that, the further out halls are not all that far away and I heard there is a regular bus service.

I was gonna go, to study Int.Rel and French WIYA; but the offer of AAA was a bit too scary. Gone for Cardiff instead for French Politics (BBC), with two years in Bordeaux. Nice.

No problem at all. Glad to help. ;-)
So have u had a chance to visit St. A.'s yet yuma? I loved it when I visited it. I could see that it could occassionally get claustrophobic, but I'm not too worried about it cos I like the idea of feeling part of the community.
I expect the work will be difficult but hopefully, there will still be time for socialising, being in societes and keeping fit. I expect it to be quite daunting to start with having to manage ur study independently rather than relying on teachers but I think my subjects are interesting so I spose that'll provide my motivation. I know it'll be a challenge but I'm impatient to get there. :-) I think that's fairly typical of most ppl I've met on UKL though.
