    I went to the (bio)medical science talk and the english one as well, collected lots of freebies and walked around the campus. Want to go back next time and look at accomodation with a few friends.
    When I went, I was shocked by how lovely the campus was. Did you not see any accomodation? I've yet to see what Hillhead is like.

    Thanks, but I'm leaning towards Glasgow atm :daydreaming: Glasgow looks like Hogwarts while Edinburgh looks a bit like an office block. I wish it was more aesthetically pleasing as the English course is kick-ass. I keep changing my mind though
    If you want a university where the students just love everything about (except maybe buildings and actually having to do the work) check out stirling

    Glasgow is crappy for student support and the students there are kinda apathetic towards uni and at stirling it seems people don't want to leave ( spoke to 3 people who just graduated and they were so jealous of me being a fresher again)

    I mean everyone thought glsgow uni was going to 'be my thing' and I detested every aspec of the open day except the buildings. I must admit..the buildings were delicious

    Can you plan individual visits for a lot of unis? I'm applying for:

    Glasgow (Biomed)
    Strath (Biomed)
    Cale (Biomed)
    Aberdeen (Biomed (pharmacology))
    Abertay (nordic studies biomed)

    I can get to all the glasgow unis fine on individual visit, it's just the other two that I'll have a problem with, esp Aberdeen. Being from ayrshire, I'll prolly have to book a hotel room or something lol.

    :rofl: They kept that top one quiet at the Open Day.
    It's formally belongs to Divinities but is used fairly widely both in and outside the university. I think there are good parts of Edinburgh that are actually very beautiful, although I got used to them during my time there.

    Tbh, none of the English departments I visited blew me away: but it's the content I'm more interested in rather than the building.
    Of course. Although I have to admit to being a little bit of an aesthete, which did factor into my university applications perhaps fractionally more than it should have done! :o: Since I don't know much about this, and I'm nosy: what kind of variations are there in the content of English degrees?

    Yes. Admissions offices are, in general, more than willing to bend over backwards to help you. For example, I decided at the last minute (i.e. after the open day) that I would like to have a look at Imperial. I ended up exchanging emails up to about 11 at night arranging to be added to a taster course that they were running something like 3 days later.

    However, you will get a better experience from going to the 'proper' open days.

    Yeah you can have as many as you want if you can't make it :yep: I went on an individual visit to Aberdeen and it was great, got a friend and her mates to show me around. If you are in Aberdeen give me a shout :p:

    You can just get a bus or a train earlyish and get one back within a day easily. Definately check Aberdeen out - their biomed degrees are the second best in scotland, behind edinburgh apparently.
