student jobs
I was wondering, how difficult would it be to find a job on campus? I know that the campus is moving this fall so things might differ somewhat. For example, does the library or post office hire students? Where might I go about finding postings?

I hope this is okay to post here.  Feel free to delete if it's not okay.  I already tried posting for advice at nor_am_uk_ac but since this community is soley dedicated to one of the schools I was interested in I figured I would be able to find out more.  I want to study abroad before I finish college and the Queen Margaret University College is one of my choices.  So my questions.

1. I'm an early childhood/elementary education major.  How's the education department there?
2.  What's transportation like?  Is it easy to get around with?
3.  The town that the University is located in is it big or small?  
4.  What's the school size like?  I'd perfer to study abroad at a smaller school
5. What's the student life/night life like?
6.  Are the dorm rooms nice?  Which hall would you say had the best ones? 

Thanks to anybody who can help provide me with some additonal insight into the school.

Hi, I'm applying as an International student at QMUC this fall. I'm curious about a couple of questions related to accomodation, to which I hope current/past students can really help me with.

I plan to stay in the post graduate student accomodations, and I'm given the choice of Grainger Stewart Halls, or Waverley Halls/Houses. Besides the minor details they give us (suit style, etc), I was wondering about the location itself. I plan to study Physiotherapy and I was wondering if anyone here knows which one is closer to the buildings where classes might be held? I understand this kind of question might be too detailed, but I'm not a morning person and I have trouble getting up sometimes...

Second, I planned to self cater and I was wondering how convenient grocery stores are to campus and/or residences.

Any kind of help is largely appreciated!

(One last question irrelevant to accomodations; I've read something about QMUC deciding to switch from college to university. What's the latest news concerning that topic, and can anyone provide me with any links? Thank you very much!)

meh, webmail.
Has anyone else been having trouble accessing webmail over the last week or so?

At first it wasn't loading, but now i't telling my my username/password are wrong!

Deep down I know all of the emails will be about car parking and societies that i'll never join, but there's always that niggling suspicion that i'm missing something important!

Wondering if it's just me or if it's everybody..

Another newbie
Hi all,

Thanks to this new "Schools" feature on lj, I found this community. Woo, I'm so impressed that there was one. Anyway I'm a B.Sc.(Hons) in Applied Human Nutrition and graduated in 1998. On checking the QMUC website it looks like quite a few of the lecturers I had have either retired or left. It's good to see that Isobel Davidson and Mike Clapham are still around though, they were probably my favourites.

I lived in Stevenson Hall, House 2 for the first year. Sadly I am terrible at keeping in contact with people so I don't really know how anyone I lived with or how anyone that was on my course (or Dietetics) is doing now. I felt all lucky when I was living in the halls, when we came back from Christmas they'd redecorated and got rid of the hideous orange or purple curtains. The 2nd year onwards I lived near Tollcross and then afterwards on Gorgie Road

I spent way too much time at the bar - Fresher's Week was a blur, on the 85 or 86 Lowland Green bus and wonder how I managed to have so much fun with the small amount of money I had. Piling up the cheap drinks at Shark on a Wednesday night kept me entertained. I miss Edinburgh very much. :(

hello from a newbie
Hello all, wowed to find a community for Queen Margaret's!

I'm one of those former students, or alumni if you want to get technical *g* I graduated in 98 with a BA in Communication Studies. I lived in Guthrie Wright for my first year and then lived down at the 'Brae for the remaining three years. I understand now that Craigmount Brae no longer has low-rent housing for students? I went to the Union on a Wednesday night (thank goodness the way home was downhill), was on the student council and spent a lot of time between the IT centre and the library. Only had 12 hours a week of classes. Quite staggering really!

Anyway, I hope to see this community thrive :)

Is anybody likely to be on campus this term?
If so, should we try to arrange to meet up at some point?

So, what do people think about the relocation plan?

Personally I think the Corstorphine campus is a hideous blocky monstrosity which can only be improved by bulldozers, but it's a terrible shame to be losing the Leith Campus (and what's happening to Gateway?).

How accessible is the new campus site? Will students be able to get into town at weekends and evenings past 11pm?

Hi, I'm Nicky and I'm doing an MSc in Information Management (this is the last year before they close the course down, apparently...)
12:11 am
I'm Jemma, and I'm a first year in PR & Media. Great fun but i think i could do without modules like "Exploring Secondary Data" and "Study and IT Skills"; why would I be at university if I couldnt already do these things? I'm such a whiny little bitch. :P
