Application deadline details:
The campus is seriously beautiful, in the heart of Scotland, and the city has so much in it for students, you'll never be bored. Two words – Dusk Mondays… There’s a few good clubs, but it’s mostly a peaceful town. Some people swear by joining a sports team, but Pub Golf was as athletic as I got. My lecturers are very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable, and we get plenty of support and feedback from them. They also coordinate a lot of internships and placements for students, which are really great for helping.
