hey! i'm starting architecture in portsmouth in september/october, coming from Ireland. I've already started a course in ireland and dropped out and was just wondering whether the majority of english students know many people going to the same uni as them? With Ireland having like a fraction of the amount of uni's in the uk everybody kinda knows a few people going/has a few friends from home studying in the same city. just wondering what the story was in the uk!:rolleyes:

Generally, you don't really know anyone. If you're from a big school going to a popular uni, you might know a couple of people.

I knew one guy about to do the same degree as me, but he dropped out after about half a year cos he didn't like it.

I know only 1 other person who is at RGU and she's left now as well.

But the friend's I've made whilst living there in 1st year are much better friends than I ever had back home so it didn't matter

Though I think in Scotland, since there are again, less uni's than in England, we are bound to know more people here

I'm going to Portsmouth too...I know a couple of people who've gone there, although most of them not that well, although I do have a good friend who goes there.
