Massive unemployment... plus it's where the English holiday if the Antarctic is full... plus you will have to learn English all over again. Midges the size of bees hunting in swarms... shall I continue?

Oh well I only meant for University. Messed up and didn’t say it in the op.

Psychology (the course I applied for) is extremely competitive and very hard to get accepted in in Germany. With my final grade it was a lot easier to get accepted in Scotland ,which I was, than in Germany..

Yeah a few things but right now mainly how did you find a place to live in from Germany? Did you call some agents? Did you go see the flats or how did you decide on one? If I am planning to move in August when should I start flat hunting? Thanks a lot in advance!

I will move from Germany to Scotland for studying this year. At least, if the Brexit allows me to

What is wrong with Glasgow? I really like to know, as I have a quite good impression of the city and university so far.

Apart from the incomprehensible local dialect? I can only assume they must restrict your movements to the safer areas.

Their dialect is the worst I have ever seen in my life.

For a look-back at extreme Glasgow (Govan?) accents (and psychology!), you could watch some BBC "Rab C. Nesbitt" 1990's episodes on YT or DVD, it is important to then calmly contrast this with 1970's Scottish weegie observational comedy from Sir William Connolly (search for "The big Yin")

Scotland is very welcoming, even to Europeans - when you get your Firm & Insurance offers sorted-out, - the next thing to try is apply for first-year housing organised by your university of choice. Most UK universities try and house all the thousands of 'freshman' (just 'fresh' nowadays?) in their own campus blocks or in a closely related affiliated system. 2nd year students are usually on their own, using the free-market for housing, some third or fourth year students might be allowed back into campus houses, if there is space.

Some colleges have a 'random' lottery housing allocation, with applications (and possibly a few hundred £ deposit) required before all applicants even know if you'll be accepted there, but most have a smooth system, with demand and supply nearly balanced. Important that you read the "Housing" part of the websites, now!

As an EU student, you'd be missing things like a UK Bank Account, UK referees, UK large deposit - which would make it difficult for you to directly enter the free market for housing, as a 'fresh'. Some campuses offer "housing", some offer "housing with food" using magic cards, sometimes you might have to share a bathroom/shower with eight other students, or you could score an "ensuite" studio, lots of different price brackets to choose. Research . . .
