    Hello!

    New user here I'm a international student from Singapore, with a diploma in Veterinary Technology.

    I just received offers from both Glasgow and Edinburgh for their vet medicine program, and am having a really hard time deciding between those two! Admittedly Edinburgh's is a conditional offer, I have to take an IELTS test first which costs $365 (yikes), and pay tuition fees too, while Glasgow is an unconditional offer.

    I've seen lots of forums talking about the nightlife/activities that both countries have to offer, but to be honest that's not really a major point for me. It's great, don't get me wrong, but I want to hear more about the course structure, and what the two programs have to offer in terms of learning, school environment etc. Tips on accommodation/expenses etc would be great too! Since I'm an international student, cost is a major deciding factor for me as well. In terms of fees, Edinburgh is slightly more expensive, about £10k+ more expensive for the 5 years.

    I would love to hear from ex and current students on why you chose Glasgow or Edinburgh, both have amazing facilities and really drew me during the interview.

    Thanks so much in advance! I'm working in a clinic now, but the vets all go to Australia universities so I have no one to ask for advice

    Have a very good look through the webpages as they will have the most up to date info about the courses. You can find students here.
