Fortunately, Heriot-Watt University provides you with everything you need. However, if I could leave you with one thought is that you are the main responsible for your integration in a new country.

I was very happy about the MSc course I attended. However, I do not know anything about other course although I suppose they are very good ones.

There are many facilities the university provides as well as many facilities on campus. Careers advice, sports centre, student's union, and many others. It is very close to the city centre but in a quite area surrounded by amazing forrests and parks, even a loch. Living on campus is very quiet and it is the best surrounding for studying. It is the best university I have ever heard about and university life is simply incredible.

I had a great time in Scotland. All you have to do, is go out there and you'll land on your feet. Scottish people are very nice and helpful, the area is beautiful and it was great to experience a semester at a Scottish university.

Travelling it's easy by public transport or renting a car. There are low cost buses and low cost car rentals. For accommodation while travelling across the country it's a good idea to check out the numerous youth hostels. For accommodation on campus it's necessary to aply asap. To look for rooms or shared flats in the city it's handful the web page www.gumtree.com.uk
