    One of my relatives lives here in Scotland. They were asking me for a long to come to them and spend some time with them as I have not met them for many years because of studies and other reasons. So, after completing my bachelor's I applied to this university in Scotland through the UCAS so that I can be with them and also can study further. The application fee for the process was £50.

    Its economics program provides a lot of flexibility and various combinations with other subjects in different fields. I also liked the university's promotion of diversity and inclusivity. The fact that the university is in the city center also appeals to me.

    Scholarship :

    No. I have not availed any scholarship or financial aid outside of the tuition fees paid by SAAS as is my right being an EU student.

    Location is great as I now am in an English speaking environment studying English and Linguistics, Rating is also important as it marks high for both the quality of the university and my course which in itself ranks top in the world.
