Studying education in the UK

Posted by Ashley Farrell on Nov 2, 2018 12:00:00 PM

A common question I get asked here is: why did you choose Scotland to study education? My answer is maybe a little more complicated than other international students, but it involves the coming together of a great programme and some family roots.

Studying Communications in the UK

Posted by Hailey Mason on Nov 8, 2017 12:00:00 PM

Time passes quickly in Aberdeen.  The leaves drop without warning and the sun sets earlier every day. It’s hard to believe that two months have passed since the beginning of the semester. I’ve submitted essays, worked on group projects, and given presentations. Yet, I still feel as if I only arrived last week.

Halloween in the UK

Posted by Josephine Gaupholm on Nov 6, 2017 4:48:02 PM

What is not to love about October? It is the perfect time to cozy up in your favorite sweater and sip on a cup of, well, pumpkin flavored anything while cracking open a new novel. October is a time for walks in the changing leaves, brisk morning runs, and of course Halloween. A classic holiday in North America, I was prepared for jack-o-lanterns adorning every doorstep, cheesy gravestones on lawns, and human-sized bags of candy being sold in shops. Alas, this is not the reality over here in fair old England. Halloween, although gaining steam, is just not as big or built-up as it is back home. Pumpkins do fill giant tubs in the entrances of grocery stores, and you may find a shop window or two covered in fake spider webs, but the overall extravagance of Halloween is sadly lost. Despite the lack of decoration, there is still plenty to do on the scariest night of the year!

University Grading in the UK

Posted by The ATP Advisors on Mar 1, 2017 7:00:00 PM

One of the most common concerns Canadian students have about studying in the UK is the grading scheme, which varies considerably from the Canadian system. Indeed, navigating the UK grades can be challenging. But don't despair! Once you understand the basics, entry requirements and the grades you receive while a student make much more sense.
