    Hi all,

    I'm a Scottish applicant with offers at these two universities. Being Scottish means I could go to Glasgow for free, and I'm wondering if you believe going to Bristol is worth spending the extra £37k?

    I went to both open days and I do prefer Bristol, I believe the prospects and links to industry etc. are much better too. However, Glasgow is closer to home and it's unconditional which is slightly appealing.

    I know Bristol is better, but is the difference huge? Is it worth the huge fees, travel costs and risk of not achieving the conditioned grades?

    Thanks in advance.

    Bristol is home to a large aerospace sector, but ultimately it's up to you to decide whether this is worth an extra £37,000 in fees.
