I'm planning on applying to Aberdeen, but I live in England and have never been to Scotland before (I know, this is probably a reallyyyyy stupid idea). Can anyone reassure me? Or just let me know what it is like up there?
Aberdeen is my second choice, but I probably won't get the grades for my first, and I'm kinda excited to live up there, but also terrified and confused.

Thanks!!!

You’ve got loads of time to visit before you pick a firm choice. Make time to stay over and get a really good feel for the city.

Definitely go visit Aberdeen before moving there!
If you're from England it's really easy to visit anyway. Just get a bus or a train and go there for 2 days or so to get a feel for the city.

Apart from that, I'd say the weather is pretty much the same - it's pretty rainy but actually Aberdeen is the sunniest city in Scotland and when it's sunny it's really pretty. It's windy most days as well
Aberdeen isn't that big of a city, so it's not too big or anything but it doesn't feel absolutely tiny. There's quite a lot of cute cafes in the city centre, and Old Aberdeen is really pretty (that's where the uni is). I'd say definitely come here for a day or two and check it out for yourself

I don't know if this might help you but there's an Instagram account about Aberdeen, I think it's called "studyinaberdeen" and they have lots of pictures of Aberdeen uni, and the city. There's also the official uni instagram obviously but they mostly post about the uni itself or just events
