Studying at Glasgow Caledonian University has been quite an experience so far. During my first year, I stayed at the uni halls (Caledonian Court) where I met many other students who had just started their studies as well and I gained new friends quickly. Glasgow is a great place to live, the city is not too big nor too small and the night life is probably the best in Scotland. I've had a pretty good two years here so far. One thing that students should take note on, is that there is not much class. I study business, and I only have around 10 hours of uni per week. This sounds pretty good, but in all honesty I feel that I have too much free time. Other than that, it is an alright place to study. (other than the weather) show less
