Hi, I'm an applicant living in the Scottish Highlands (very little city experience), looking to study music this year (assuming the courses go ahead as normal). I have attainable offers from UofG and Napier. I have narrowed down my options to BMus at uni of Glasgow and BA Popular music at Napier, and as a very indecisive individual, the tension of having to make a well informed decision is playing on my mind quite strongly.

I am looking for a course with a balance of practical performance and academia that allows me to study music as a broad subject in many different contexts. I am a bass player (both electric and upright) and an intermediate (though enthusiastic!) cellist with a particular interest in jazz, blues and funk as well as world music.

Is there anyone studying music or that knows anyone doing so in either of these courses that are able to provide any pros or cons, even if it's just regarding the university as a whole or simply the music scenes in the opposing cities?
