Just a quick thread to mention it being the best place in the world. Whereelse but Heriot Watt uni could you go to a party in your boxers and it's all normal? I rest my point: Edinburgh rocks. Thank you.

Other thing... I noticed this is a mostly British/Euro forum eh? And based on posts most people seem younger than me, and it's a bit weird but eh.

In Glasgow you get mugged.


Though to be honest I haven't really been there. Nor do I want to

Glasgow is the way to go

I wouldn't quite say that... well there definitely used to be more Americans.

We had a talk on Scottish Uni's last week in school and Heriott Watt seemed pretty cool.

HW is one of the best unis in the UK for engineering and management. And definitely one of the best in Europe for languages. Our languages department is world famous. It's a real great place. Small uni so you know everyone, and so far I've had nothing but great things to say about it. Love the place.
#18
A lot of people seem to do that. I didn't even apply to Edi uni though I could probably have gotten in. Wasn't interested in going to a big uni. I got into all my unis, Huddersfield (2 courses), Liverpool John something, Aston (Brum), Oxford Brookes, HW...thankfully I saw Scotland before deciding England... *shivers*

Glasgow has such a better nightlife than Edinburgh! AND is the number one uni in Scotland (last time i checked). Better than the tech college down the road (*cough*calledonia*cough*)! U been to the calley union? its a bar... just one! we have 2 unions, the GUU has about 12 bars i think!! Strathy unions ok, but the toilets are up stairs from the bar... whats with that!?

But yeah... Glasgow > Edinburgh

Glasgow University is not the best Uni in Scotland, it's Edinburgh:

And the GUU's a ****ing dump. Doesn't compare with Potterow and Teviot.

Oh, inter-Uni rivalry

23rd in the world?

That seems very high


But I don't normally trust league tables, they change alot

Also there are other things you need to think about before applying to a uni, as in, do you want to live their for 3, 4, 5 years?

I don't think I could have gone to Oxford for 5 years or Imperial
#24
^^ You're right (and I chose that one because others rank St Andrews above Edinburgh, and I'm having none of that )

All the same though, you won't find a league table where Glasgow is higher than either of those Unis.

It's the 'Scottish university of the year' actually, according to the times

Last time I was at Edinburgh I was sitting on a park bench with a friend at 2 in the morning casually eating strawberry laces whilst watching these 2 guys try to beat each other to death. Good times.

I say glasgow for shopping

edinburgh for culture


I'd say Glasgow for murder.

Edinburgh for heroin.

I've never been to either city, so I have no opinion, just what I've seen in Danny Boyle films and UG.

I'd say they're both at least equal for culture...

Well, there only are 6, maybe 7, good Unis to choose from so I imagine it's a continuous loop they have. Next year it'll be Strathclyde, followed by Dundee, etc.

God I'm such a snob.

Edinburgh Uni/St Andrews is for toffs. And HW isn't really what I'd call a university (i.e. there are a lot of basic subjects not on offer).

HW is a very small uni, about 6,000 students. Edi is a LOT bigger. That's why they don't offer that much in way of say, psychology, arts, medicine etc... It's a lot more practical: Management, engineering, physics, chemistry, languages...

Hey guys,
International Student living here in Glasgow. In the time i've been here i've seen and experienced more of Scotland than half the scots. I go to Caley...(****hole) and my only bragging right is that it's the only Optometry school in Scotland and ranked #2 in the UK.....other than that i'd never go here. I can honestly say that Edinburgh is a much more scenic, beautiful place to go and I enjoy the small city aspect of it. It has alot more culture going for it as well. Glasgow is great for a night out or some shopping. You don't need to feel threatened about murder here if you keep your mouth shut when your loaded drunk and avoid groups of Neds when you're walkin down the street.

I've never understood the connotations of visiting Glasgow and getting murdered. I've lived there 18 years of my life and never felt felt the threat.

and? Imperial doesn't offer alot of basic subjects and is considered one of the best universities in the world.

I'm applying to both Edinburgh and Glasgow for university next year. Not sure which one I prefer the idea of more.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

If you're staying in halls of residence then nothing more than a pen. Pollock Halls is probably in one of the safest parts.
