Heya, im 18 and sitting my advanced highers this year, and going to study midwifery in september. I had my heart absolutely set on Edinburgh Napier Uni as I really like Edin and I go there a lot. However I didn't get an interview so I had to accept my unconditional from RGU. I have only been up to Aberdeen a few times and I didnt vibe with it well... I am now dreading uni as instead of an hour train back home it is a 3 hour train and I dont know anybody in aberdeen or moving up there for uni any advice on moving and settling in will be great as I still get really upset thinking about moving up there.

The city grows on you, wherever you move to (I go to uni in Birmingham, I had a lot to get to used too coming from a village near Worcester).

As for not knowing anyone, next to nobody will no anyone as well. Moving to uni puts everyone in a "let's socialise" mood - everyone is sharing an exciting, somewhat scary new situation. Freshers week is the best time to get to know your flatmates and coursemates, and it happens regardless of whether you drink.

It's perfectly normal to go to university not knowing anyone- the vast majority of people don't. It's also normal to go that far away for university.
