    Well, honestly it comes down to what you would like in a uni, a small but charming community type uni, or a vibrant but less personal type uni. St Andrews does have a great reputation for IR, but Edinburgh is pretty good for IR also. I'm having the same issue except with French and IR. Have you visited the universities and met with departmental personnel? I'm leaning towards Edinburgh as well but i'm going to visit, so after I speak with someone from my department and tour the places, I'll probably make my final decision.
    Thanks for the reply! I have visited St Andrews a couple of times. The last time was a languages-specific open day I went to with the school, which I actually really enjoyed. The faculty was very helpful and knowledgeable, and I can see why many people would like the personal feel of such a small department. But still, the location is a big downside for me. I've never been to an Edinburgh open day, but I'm going to their Post Offer visit day on the 5th of April. So we'll see how that goes. If I vehemently hate it, then I'll consider St Andrews more seriously

    I have a quick question for anyone who could help. I'm an american and i just got my application portal. For the financial section, would i still have to fill that out even though my parents are paid in dollars and not pounds, should i just convert their salaries or would that be confusing for the school. Thanks for any help that can be offered.

    To get a correct response I'd email and ask through St Andrews themselves. On your portal there should be a part where you can 'ask a question' or you can email them through [email protected].

    Hi, I don't know if you were just wondering about physics applicants or not, but as a RUK student, I thought I'd say that I didn't apply for year 2 entry. I applied for year 1 entry psychology

    Hey, I'm applying for English and Italian. I applied a week or two before the christmas break, just wondering whether anyone had heard anything back from the English or Modern Languages department yet as I'm getting stressy about it already, even though I know that realistically I won't be hearing back anytime soon. I already have my results so I don't know whether that will have any bearing on how quickly I'll hear back?

    Good luck with your results! How do you like St Andrews so far?

    Yeah, definitely my first choice (although Edinburgh would be amazing as well ). I'm from Germany so I'm an EU applicant - hopefully, I won't have to wait two more months, it's absolutely nerve-wrecking to check UCAS Track all the time ...
    Are you from Scotland or EU? And if you are from an EU country, did you have any problems with the language (academic writing etc.)? Sorry for the questions, it's just really interesting
