Personal assessment
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why? it´s close to the uny and the city center. I know people living there. It´s also not very expensive
Personal comments:
The service was good and the facilities were ok, we had internet, Tv and doctor. The only problem was that my place was to far from the uny and the city center. But I have very good time there and I meet a lot people and this what I wanted

Personal social experience
Amazing! Hardly had time to study.
Plenty to do when I had the time.
Did not get involved.
Describe host city: Students interact with the local community without much university involvement
Activities: Takes place mostly within the university/student environment
Nightlife, Travel: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
Bambou is a cosy and classy club and probably the best club in Glasgow : they have special nights for students. Otherwise do not miss any big night in the university student union or the Garage.

Studying abroad is an experience that EVERYBODY has to do once. You won't know what it is until you do it, and it worth.
In my opinion:
Most people loved it.

During my experience abroad, I ...

Happened all the time.
Happened quite a lot.
Happened a bit.
Didn't happen.
Improved language skills
Met people from other countries
Became more independent
Partied a lot
Experienced a change in life
Advanced my studies/career
Personal recommendation:
This is a good University, but you have to remember that you come to study, so choose one that has the course that fits your expectations.


You will have enough time to travel and to have fun, but you have to study, that was the main reason why you are here.
