It is easy to get stuck or lack creativity for pending assignments, and instead dream yourself away to being home by the fire drinking hot cocoa on […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes (Other than ‘because it’s in the QS top 20 world university rankings, duh.’) When I logged in the University of Edinburgh as my first choice on UCAS, I had never been to a single open day.

Reading Time: 3 minutes There are many aspects of my experience as a student living in Edinburgh that I could write about.
