Live in Scotland for 3 years before your studies begin and you are a Scottish resident. This has an impact on the level of fees you pay.

What is your profession? What skills/experience do you have?

While the UK does not have a high unemployment rate there ARE people out of work and with the EU there are plenty of skilled/experienced people looking for work so employers are not short of choice.

You should have resources to last a few months while you job search.

Please write your posts in plain English, using text speak just makes a lot of people ignore the posts because they don't know what they mean. 'I should v resources' what does the v mean, it's got me beaten.

Yes of course one needs to work to survive long term, but you have never lived in the UK, there are plenty of people who can admin work, and although you are going to have accommodation to start with, don't underestimate how long it might take you to find work - hence the resources.

This idea of communicating by code (V=have, D=the and U=you) reminds me of the Two Ronnies' "Swedish Made Simple" sketch:


In the case of the Two Ronnies it was humorous. On this forum it is just annoying.

One of the great good fortunes we have is that English has become the world's lingua franca.
As such, it is used in many different ways by many different people(s).

It is precisely that freedom that has led to its success. Personally I relish it.
