Aberdeen is cheaper than Glasgow - at least if you decide to stay in halls. Halls start from 89 pounds per week in Aberdeen, in Glasgow they’re all above 100 pounds.
I’d say apply to all three and then decide. Glasgow is the second best Uni in Scotland after Edinburgh, and Aberdeen has surpassed St Andrews in the Times Higher Education Rankings 2019, and has been voted Scottish University of the Year.
I studied in Aberdeen and I loved the uni. It is such a welcoming place, everyone is super helpful and there is always something happening on campus.
The gym is huge and it offers so many courses, plus the Uni itself is home to hundreds of great societies and sport clubs.
I can’t comment on Glasgow or St Andrews, because I haven’t studied there.
I know though that Aberdeen is one of the most international universities in the UK and in my course there were a lot of US students as well.
I actually only met around 10 people from Scotland, everyone else was international. But that may have just been because of my course.
