The university is lovely, nice and calm with enthusiastic and passionate teachers who helped me out a lot. The Uni has loads of places to eat and hang out in the Hub. There’s no SU venue, but Aberdeen is buzzing - you just have to suck up the 20 minute bus ride to town from campus, and there are loads of students in the city so you’ll be making loads of friends quickly. Belmont Street is a guaranteed good night out. Also, has 0.12 fast food shops per 1,000 people, so you'll be healthier at least...
