Glasgow and Global School of English:Will I be able to get … in Scotland?

Glasgow Global Scotland

One of the things we are often asked by people who are thinking about coming to study English in Scotland is, “will I be able to get…?”

The things we’re asked about are very varied.  For many students, it’s a question of whether they are able to get their preferred food in Edinburgh or Glasgow.  With increasing interest in vegetarian and vegan meals, not to mention the major world religions’ requirement for specific foods (e.g. halal/kosher), this is an important issue for many people.

The good news is that if you come to Glasgow School of English or Global School of English in Edinburgh, you’ll be spoiled for choice!  We regularly publish links to local shops, restaurants and cafes where you can get every type of food and our supermarkets have a wide choice of vegetarian and vegan food too.  But you must also find time to try some of our Scottish food, such as Haggis, Cullen Skink (a creamy, smoked fish soup, am bit like chowder), Kippers (smoked herring) and of course, Fish and Chips.  If you are a vegetarian you can even get vegetarian haggis!  And if you are very brave, you can try a deep-fried Mars bar!

Similarly, we are often asked about religious tolerance in Scotland (“Will I be able to go to a mosque/synagogue, etc.?”).  Here too, the good news is that although this is traditionally a Christian country, we welcome people of all faiths and none.  If you are a Muslim, there is a wide selection of mosques; similarly, for Orthodox Christians there are a number of churches you can attend; and Jews have synagogues to visit in all our major cities. Again, you can find regular posts on our Facebook and Twitter pages with links to these religious places.
