Glasgow was incredible, I was genuinely surprised when I arrived here. Don’t believe the hype, Glasgow is a bustling metropolis with loads of amazing bars, coffee shops and markets (The Barras is a godsend for decorating your flat) to whittle down your student loan. Caledonian is also a lovely university – I was seriously impressed by their support services, they were very accommodating and helped me out with bursaries and applying for various schemes. They were really dedicated to making sure I was able to achieve my degree with the minimum of financial and health stresses, and I’m very grateful!
