A Scottish education can provide a gateway into many amazing career opportunities. But, once the lectures are over, the library is closed and the books are put away for the day, it’s important to make the most of your free time in this amazing country!
Sure, we have stunning castles and monuments. Yeah, we have more than 460 museums and galleries. Of course, we have internationally-renowned, national performance companies. However, we’re also an amazing hotbed of new and emerging music, home to one of the largest concert venues in the UK and have a well-earned reputation for putting on a party and having a great time.
Scotland’s seven vibrant cities are jam-packed with a huge amount of things to do when you need a break from the books. Each of our cities have their own unique character and charm, offering everything from indie cafes and second hand book shops to intimate gig venues and a selection of pubs and clubs to suit every taste. With so many options, you’ll be spoiled for choice everyday.
If you’re thinking about studying in Scotland, and looking for first-hand accounts of what life here is like, don’t just take our word for it. These real life stories are gathered from an independent group of people who chose to study in Scotland and made it their new home. Let them tell you about why they chose Scotland, and why you should too!
Whether it’s getting to class, or getting time away from the books, Scotland has an excellent public transportation system. Roughly 95% of the population live within a five minute walk of a bus or train stop in Scotland, meaning that wherever you need to go, we can get you there. With most companies also offering discounted student prices, we can save you a few quid at the same time!
Located in the mid-west of Europe, Scotland may be small but we’re punching well above our weight! Occupying the northern third of Great Britain we share a border with England in the south and pack some of the most stunning scenery in all of the UK into our borders. From wild coastlines and pristine beaches to rolling valleys and towering mountains, Scotland’s geography is a huge part of its appeal.
