Hi, Glasgow is a great city to come for your studies. It has several universities (Glasgow, Caledonian and Strathclyde) so it has a thriving student life. Its wet in Scotland compared to England but don't let that put you off. You will not be disappointed.

I mean, it's Scotland so it's always going to be colder and wetter when compared to London.

Well yes it does rain a lot here. Crime happens everywhere but it’s generally a safe city.

its a Scottish thing lol
eg. Dundee has been called the gang capital
Glasgow has been called knife capital and was the drug capital in 1960s/1970s and has been called one of the friendliest cities
(both of their universities are really good especially the medical and dental schools)

Any big city in any part of the world has some criminal activity but Glasgow is no worse than any other city in the UK. 30 years ago Glasgow was a very different city - lots of crime etc but it is a great city to live in now. Have a look at the actual crime rate in Glasgow (and any other city in the UK) by clicking HERE.

As someone who was born and bred in Edinburgh and has also lived overseas and experienced true heavy rain, I can say that there is never heavy rain in Edinburgh or Glasgow. I'm not sure what your image of heavy rain is but it's not actually heavy.

Scottish weather is very fickle and easily changeable - you'll have days which are rainy, windy, sunny, moderate or a mix of everything. It certainly doesn't rain everyday nor does it rain for most of the week. That's just stereotype. You'll definitely be fine here.

If you are moving to Glasgow, be aware that there can indeed be several seasons in one day - the weather is very changeable. There is a saying in Scotland that you pay for one day of sunshine with three days of rain. Today it is 28* and sunny, but it does rain here quite often compared to hotter countries. Make sure to pack suitable clothing and shoes or buy when you get here. A waterproof jacket and comfortable shoes/trainers are a must especially if you plan to do some sightseeing, and wellies can come in handy in winter as we do sometimes get snow (usually at the end of winter in February/March!). Luckily, Scotland is a beautiful country no matter the weather!

Safe travels,

Gill @ MyPad Paisley

Hahahha no , I live in Mumbai, and Mumbai has this extreme hot in summer and extreme rains in rainy days. Like literally so much of heavy rain that you cant see a meter front of yourself sometime. So thick.
I just dont want this. Atleast not for all the time. If its just drizzly usually and sometimes heavy then no problem, i can deal with it
