It's actually some good news. Next month my daughter will be leaving for Scotland for a year, to pursue a Master's Degree in Art History at St. Andrews University. Her fiancee is going with her, since he was able to secure a temporary work visa. I'm very proud of her indeed, but I'll also miss her terribly. I've got a few questions regarding living in Scotland. They are: 1. Will she be able to qualify for National Health once she starts school, and will her fiancee also qualify? 2. How is the cost of living in the St. Andrews area? 3. How far away is London and the Continent in terms of time by train? 4. Do universities in the UK have things like Spring Break like they do here in the US? I've told my daughter that this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see as much of the UK and Europe as she can, so hopefully she'll be able to take advantage of it, even though she'll be busy with the thesis, etc. Any and all advice is certainly welcome!
