I've applied to Edinburgh and Ayr but I've not heard back yet!! Getting anxious. I have applied for both the Horticulture and garden design courses but I'm not feeling super confident!! :-(
I live in Ayr so I'm hoping I get accepted there but I my grades match up better with Garden Design in Edinburgh. What have you both applied for? I'm finding it super difficult to find other people applying to SRUC.

I'm interested what can you do with those courses or degrees? Yeah there doesn't seem to be many people about that I've heard off good to know someone else is I only know of one person who's applying to sruc.

I've applied for animal care as a sort of secure choice and applied animal science. I've had good news from animal science but nothing for animal care there maybe not very fast at get through applications. I wouldn't worry I'm sure you'll be fine

You can do loads of things with horticulture. I think I want to work in fruit production or producing plants on a large scale for retail but you could start your own buisness,go into plant science and do research or work for a botanic garden.
Congrats on hearing from animal science that sounds cool :-)

Oh that sounds interesting never even thought about that. Is plant science similar to plant biology?

Thanks very much I hope so haha

I have applied for Animal Care too! Well done on getting in to animal science I am getting so impatient waiting to hear back as I've only applied to Oatridge so I either get in there or nothing! Are you planning on living on campus halls or travelling through? I haven't heard of anyone else applying to SRUC so it's exciting to hear other people that have!!

I applied for the HNC - I only want to do a year then hopefully do Vet Nursing next year once I've done the HNC ! What about you? Ah cool that's convenient for you. I'm planning on moving to Edinburgh and just travelling through, campus is so far away I'd rather be in the city!! I am just constantly on edge waiting to hear back. Every email sends me into a panic! Glad I'm not the only one still waiting!

I applied to oatridge for veterinary nursing and veterinary care assistant and haven't heard back.. I'm slightly worried.. I applied last year for barony but it was before I could drive and I got a place but had to turn it down, so I'll be disappointed if I don't get a place this year 🙄

Try not to worry, I contacted them a few weeks ago and I was told they are trying to process all applications as fast as possible.

I travel to SRUC at the Edinburgh Campus. I'm in first year currently doing Environmental Resource Management. I come in at Waverley and then I need to walk 5-10 mins to the bus stop (the mound foot, next to the National Gallery) and then I get the 41 bus in, that takes about 20-25 mins. The bus drops you off right outside the SRUC building at Kings Buildings.

Thanks. I was at the applicant day on Wednesday and the course looks really good from what I can tell. Everyone I met seemed really friendly too,I'm probably just going to move up to Edinburgh now considering it went so well and I think renting with a friend might be cheaper than travelling.

Is there car parking spaces for students?

If there is do you know if it's fairly easy to get one?

Thanks!

There is car parking for students/staff at Kings Building but I've been told it's by permit you have to pay for.

Others on my course don't have a permit but they park in the roads around Kings Buildings such and they say it's quite easy to get a space

Hi, I've applied to do vet nursing at SRUC in Aberdeen. However I've sent the admissions team multiple emails about my application over the last 3 months and they haven't replied to any of them. Is anyone else having this problem?
