Had my exam results through and whilst I am 50/50 on whether or not to go to uni, I am throwing this question out there to gage what may be my best options.

Which ones here are the most LGBT friendly? Any to avoid?

Bump. If this needs moved to another part of the forum, feel free to do so.

I’m sure that all universities in Scotland are LGBT friendly, especially the ones in cities.

This is a really interesting read if you want to know about being LGBT+ at St Andrews https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/stories/2018/lgbt-life/

St Andrews is probably the university that I would avoid the most for other reasons TBH.

Sort of looking into the ones in cities.

Don't quote me on this one, but I am sure that Glasgow was the only one that met all of Stonewall's criteria. Had heard also that Dundee wasn't an LGBT friendly uni which makes me dubious as to whether to apply there.

If your other reasons are that you want a city then that's cool, but if it's because you've heard bad things about the uni itself I'd be happy to chat about your concerns. If you're meaning the Stonewall diversity champion thing, Glasgow's not the only one, there's a list here https://www.stonewall.org.uk/diversi...mpions-members and from skimming it I see Edinburgh, Napier, Dundee, Glasgow, St Andrews, and Aberdeen. Might have missed some though!

Most uni's will have some sort of LGBT club or society

I studied in Aberdeen and they’re super LGBTQ+ friendly. They have their own club, and they regularly have events of all kinds.

Also, about 1/3 of the people i met were LGBTQ+. I can’t speak for other Unis, but I felt like Aberdeen was definitely very welcoming, open and supportive.
