    It'd be nice if you guys keep the thread going with how you're getting on etc., as a few months from now there'll be more just like you debating whether to take the plunge :)

    I've been here for almost a month now and it's been absolutely amazing!!
    If anyone is thinking about studying here or anywhere in the UK even, I highly recommend it :)




  • Hi,
    I got an offer to do Maths teaching in University of Glasgow and University of Strathclyde. I am just wondering which one would be better for education, which university would have the better name/more prestigious, which is more intense, most central to town etc..? I really haven't a clue which one to pick :/

    Hey there!
    Congrats on your offer!!!
    In my opinion, I would have to say that University of Glasgow in the better university in terms of prestige and education. Being 51st in the world top university rankings according to the QS world rankings, there's no doubt that it's at a high standard and therefore can be quite intense.
    In relation to proximity to the city centre, both are roughly equidistant. Uni of Glasgow is spread out all around the city though but since you'll be studying maths, your lectures will be by the main campus(which is beautiful btw) so you can get to the city centre in about 6 minutes by subway or even walk there if you don't mind a ~30 minute walk :).
    If you've got any other questions, feel free to ask!




  • Hi, we're moving to glasgow from Ireland as my wife got a spot in Stratclyde Uni.
    Just wondering for areas to live. I'll be working so we won't be living the student lifestyle so where's good mid-range?

    I’m just a desperate for information at this stage for information on living in Glasgow.
    Hoping to do nursing in Glasgow Caledonian but hardly any information of the experience online, which is a pity!

    Is Glasgow living costs roughly same as Edinburgh ?
    Ho difficult would it to find a job?
    Thanks
