Hey there I'm Tiago, I'm a student from Portugal and I recently visited Scotland for the second time and I absolutely loved it. I was in Edinburgh and I adored the city so much that I'm looking into taking my degree there, hopefully starting in 2019! I would love to have some information about how to apply for a degree in University of Edinburgh, if there's any aid or scholarships for international students and how much is the cost of living in the city. Thanks in advance!

Glasgow's also an excellent choice. To be honest, it's probably a more picturesque campus than Edinburgh

Hey I'm looking to do architecture, however I just looked at the complete university guide and apparently the student satisfaction for Edinburgh is very low? I know I shouldn't rely on those statistics, but I was wondering why?

it's a chronic problem with Edinburgh and I've never got a serious answer no matter how many different ways i've tried to ask.

all you can do is say that Edinburgh's low ratings are relative to other universities, rather than being absolute... in other words most students ARE satisfied at Edinburgh, just less so than at almost any other uni.
