Everyone - staff and students, but also strangers - I have met at the beginning was so interested that I was Canadian and wanted to know more about me and why I chose to come to Scotland. It wasn’t very long before I found a group of friends that I really connected with.

I absolutely love the city and the country. Coming from such a large metropolitan area as LA I enjoy how green and open the country just outside Glasgow is. When I get a chance I take the train, bus, or convince a friend to drive me out to the highlands for hillwalking and fresh air.

National and international students are often together exchanging ideas and getting to know each other, and sharing their experiences, which for me creates a real sense of community.
