Living in Scotland?

Post by sergio on Fri 20 Nov 2009, 22:36

hello to everyone
i am a new member here and wondering if there are any members from UK around...
i am near the end of my studies and looking for a place for master's program...i am thinking of UK, but especially Scotland...
so I would like to ask for your help, if anyone could give some tips on how is life in Scotland...in beautiful Edinburgh maybe??? or Glasgow?? are there big differences between these two, as far as living there is concerned? about social life?
i 've never visitied Scotland, but i've heard so nice things from friends spending a week there...
any tip could help!
thanks in advance

Hey Sergio.
Not sure if you are still considering moving to Scotland or not but I thought I would give you a bit of information anyway as other people on the forum might find it useful!
I've visited Glasgow before but not Edinburgh so I can only advise you on that! Glasgow is a very 'young' city with great nightlife and a great party vibe to it. I believe that there are 2 Universities in Glasgow so there is a big student vibe there too. The last time I went there I went to visit a friend who was studying at Strathclyde Uni and four of us rented an amazing city apartment for a few days. The nightlife in the week is just as good, if not better than the weekend!
I'm not sure where you are originally from and what Winters are like where you are but Glasgow is very COLD. Scotland has the coldest weather in the whole of the United Kingdom so I would definitely prepare yourself for that. Apart from that though, there is so much to do in the city. Theres loads of theatres, cinemas, restaurants etc... so there is plenty to do! Glasgow on a whole is relatively safe and most people are very friendly. Having said this, like any large city, there is a lot of crime and 'dodgy' areas so be aware of that too.

Enjoy Scotland!

Scotland offers free prescriptions, good schools, no university fees and more for your money in terms of property
