Is it mainly done by distance learning? It's a different location but under the same thing so I can't imagine it being too different- she's looking at Argyll.

It is classed as learning centres I think so they will go as normal depending on the course

Urgh sorry I meant the would physically go in to do their hours so it would probably be a college your dd would go to,

DD2 had a conditional for there and we went for a look-see to Inverness. It was still in the old college buildings at that point, but I believe it is now into the new campus. I was very impressed with their pastoral care. The downside then was that there were no halls, but again, I believe that has changed. This was almost 5 years ago. It had a great atmosphere and as a new university, there was a lot of life and a great feeling about it.
