    I've applied for Artificial Intelligence and Mathematics. Not heard anything yet, and I think that I probably won't hear anything for a while yet . I'm a Scotland applicant, so it'll be one of the last.

    EE & CS first year here. Tag me in if you have any questions about the course and I'll try to answer. I probably won't be able to answer any admissions related questions, though.
    Hi!
    Could you just give a brief on the student life there. Plus, are you an international. If yes, how do you think is the international student welfare there?

    I'm not an international student. I normally reside in England.

    I haven't experienced much of the nightlife (yet) but I've been to a few pubs with friends and there are loads of them here.

    There are a ridiculous amount of societies so you'll always find one that suits you

    That's a very general answer, so if you have any more specific questions then feel free to tag me in again.

    Thats nice.
    What about the professors? How are the academics there? Is it more self learning via experiences, or the traditional lectures?

    I can only comment for the School of Engineering and the School of Informatics here. The lecturers I have are very helpful. They're willing to take questions during the lecture and often stay for a few minutes at the end to answer any questions.

    They also use an online tool called Piazza so you can ask questions to the lecturers anonymously, and they're usually pretty quick when it comes to responding.

    I'm not going to lie, sometimes the lecturer (or the lecture content itself) can be very boring, so you will have to do a lot of self learning (that's the nature of university work) but there is plenty of support available through the tutorials/workshops or something called InfBase which is a drop in type of session where you can get help from those who are often in the third year of their degree.
