    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    LOVELY GLASGOW.

    The location of this university was excellent and I can get there using great transport links. I applied to 2 universities, with Glasgow being my number 1 choice, and I, fortunately, got accepted. For my course, I had to attend an interview and achieve AAABB in my Higher exams. This university also allowed me to do Catholic teaching, at no extra cost, which was perfect for me.


    Course Curriculum - 

    It is very beneficial that they include Theology as an option. Having 3 classes per semester is great as it means I won't be too overwhelmed with my studies but will be challenged enough to do well in exams.

    GOODS AND BADS OF A SCOTTISH TITLE.

    Because the topics that were showed at the webpage we're interesting and the institution has a good ranking. A friend of mine studies here and she had a good time, so she suggested me to come. The quality of the teachers is supposed to be really good.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I don't like how what they teach and how they teach us is not connected with the way we are suppose to teach.I like the topics but I think we need more practice because everything is too theoretical.

    GLASGOW UNIVERSITY REVIEW

    The option to enrol in a foundation year before starting my degree was beneficial, the university has a good reputation and it is located close to my home. Many of my friends attend Glasgow University too.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I enjoy it as it has been week l designed and is easy to understand. Each topic ties in nicely to the previous and is doesn't seem to skip around too much. It's very in-depth and the variance in activities is a bonus.
