People Make Glasgow. The university is the heart of the city.
Tips: Being an international student I expected to take time and settle in Scotland. To my surprise, everything looked easier as soon as I landed there. People were friendly, college services made my living expenses and budgeting cut down and professors were approachable.
Likes (Public transportation): The university is the heart of the city. As the banners in Glasgow quote - "People make Glasgow", it means the same too. There are a lot of buses connecting students to the university. Students have heavy discounts throughout their valid student cards.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): As we all know, the visa rules changed in the UK over the span of 3 years due to political change in the economy which is why permanent settlement and acquiring a VISA has become a little difficult for students. I would definitely love to stay in the country.

My University experience was lively and super fun
Tips: I am quite satisfied with my university and my course. I did not receive any scholarships. I would have liked the course to be a bit longer because one year for a Master's feels a bit short. By the time you get used to your life in Glasgow, the year ends. I had received the university experience that I wanted to.
Likes (Student Life): I had 3-4 classes per week, each of 2 hours. There were multiple social events from my department and the university as a whole throughout the year. There were many different societies and clubs which organized events throughout the year and I attended most of them and they were great for socialising.
Dislikes (Part time work): There are on campus and off campus jobs available but it is also quite competitive to get and is not very easy to get hired. Part-time work *for me* was manageable as my contact was flexible. And I got paid minimum wage for part time which changed every April and was decent enough for me, personally to sustain (this might vary according to everyone's financial situation).

100% would recommend studying here!
Tips: With the number of international students here, it's a very easy transition just the weather is a little cold so be prepared for that. Other than that, feel right at home! Scholarships are available if you apply for them early on in the process. Overall, quite happy with my choice of course and University of Glasgow is a beautiful place to live, would definitely consider studying here.
Likes (Public transportation): Easy bus and subway access - bus around is 5 pounds return and subways 3 pounds per day. Bus passes and subway passes are available (free bus for students under 21). Bus pass would make the bus around 2 pounds a day and subways around 1.5 (depending on the duration of the pass you would take). Personally prefer the subways, but the connectivity of it is not very good.
Dislikes (Internships): Not too many opportunities, but have to be actively looking for them. Computer Science jobs are quite easy to get at the graduate level. Internships itself though are not as easy, but possible regardless. Placements as available in India are not a thing here so be vary of that.
