    Everyone attending the University of Edinburgh or living in the city could write the pros and cons of the Uni and the city itself. I guess many people are struggling with their University choices and especially between Glasgow and Edinburgh.

    Everyone attending the University of Edinburgh or living in the city could write the pros and cons of the Uni and the city itself. I guess many people are struggling with their University choices and especially between Glasgow and Edinburgh.
    Pros:
    Edinburgh is a lovely city. Plenty of touristy things to do
    Lothian Buses/Trams is fairly reliable so it's easy to get around
    The university enjoys a decent reputation. Might impress a few family members
    Depending on the subject you're going to study, there might be some cutting-edge stuff going on which might appeal if you're interested in a certain field (AI or Robotics in Edinburgh is commonly cited as an example)

    Cons:
    Rent is bloody expensive
    If you're doing STEM (apart from Informatics), you'll be based in the King's Buildings which is a fair distance away from George Square
    Low NSS scores (student satisfaction)
