You will evolve as a person as well as academically.
Tips: First and foremost, I believe I have matured as an individual in all aspects. Every day will teach you something that will favourably impact your personality. There is a scholarship for my course; simply check the date and website. The M.Sc. Finance department provides excellent instruction. To be the best, you must have a competitive advantage. Aside from the weather, I believe my experience living in the country was above average.

Not too good and not too bad. Course is not worth it.
Tips: There was no cultural shift, no transition required as my university was filled with Indians but the experience was good. No scholarship is rewarded, I used my own money. I'm not satisfied with the university, not worth the course. The country is good, with good people but the climate is the biggest drawback.

MSc Business Analysis & Consulting - Batch of 2023
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
Not worth spending the fee amount.
Tips: Just know that you will be spending money to move from your country to the UK and not on the education itself. The education is overhyped and is subjective to each person. Most of the learning which one person wants to do can be done through youtube. The jobs you would have after MSc will be around a 25-30k job. Unless you are really lucky or have a lot of friends in big companies here. It seems to be a better option to learn the skills and directly apply for jobs in the UK from your home country rather than spending 20-25k on the name of higher education which seems to be a bit of a gamble.
Likes (Indian Food): Food options are great, you will have to travel a little bit but if you are willing to travel, you will get the type of food you want. I prefer cooking at home as going out is not very ideal usually and ordering in every day is costly. and also I wanted to learn how to cook.
Dislikes (Value for money): You don't learn something which is as valuable as your fees money. You would be just paying the fees to move out from your country and to study in the UK. The things you study in this Uni can be easily studied at home through YouTube. With money which is around 20-25k pounds, you can literally learn any skill you want from other means and save at least 98% of it.

Academically and athletically oriented university
Tips: Don't spend money on luxuries until you get a part time job. Rather than part time other facilities are incredible great and easy to use. One should get the winter jackets from superdry or north face because the quality compared to the price in which we get them is great and you'll need it throughout the year.
Likes (Value for money): Good facilities for students including gym and library which is open 24hrs in summers. Tuition fees is high compared to the coursework and the staff. Most of the staff speak fluent English while some of them have an accent which is really tough to understand.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): Companies are willing to sponsor the visas for the students. If you have past experience in this field then it would be really helpful considering the post study jobs. Work environment looks decent until they are paying you good. Appreciate the offers you get in the beginning which will help you in future.

A great place for learning! It is fun to be here.
Tips: There is a vibrant Indian community in Glasgow. You can always find a piece of home here if you look for it. The cultural shift was not so much in my opinion. As long as you keep an open mind and a warm heart, you will find the college and Glasgow a great place to learn and grow. The faculty has an informal, eloquent and mostly funny way of teaching that keeps us engaged and curious. I was advised that scholarships don't exist but they do exist and most of my classmates saved a good amount of money. Overall, I am pleased with the college and the country. The people make Glasgow (pun intended) a great place to live, learn and enjoy.
Likes (Safety): The campus is close-knit and in the middle of the city centre. Due to the heavy student population in the surrounding area, the community is accustomed to international students and is mostly warm and welcoming. The Glasgow police as well as campus security are highly responsive. The city in itself is friendly and a mixed community. Problems rarely happen.
Dislikes (Internships): I believe there are internship options available for candidates. I have not explored the option and do not know anyone who explored it. Therefore, I cannot speak for the opportunities. I am aware that there are many internship openings but don't know about student selection.
