Meet Parker Millspaugh, an MMus Vocal Performance student from Oklahoma, USA.
Parker is pictured here at Loch Lomond, a 30-minute drive from our campus in Glasgow city centre. She recently spoke to us about why she loves studying in Scotland:
“My favourite thing about living in Glasgow, in Scotland, is the accessibility to anything: if you’re someone who loves an urban city, and want to go see the symphony, if you want to go to the jazz orchestra, and do these things, you have the access. Not only in terms of location but it’s also financially really accessible to go to these things. It’s £6 for a ticket, so I’ll just pop over and go see the BBC SSO (Scottish Symphony Orchestra) and so it’s such a wonderful thing.”
“What I also love […] is that you’re able to hop in a car, or get on a train or the bus for 30 minutes and you’re in a different world. Take 45 and you’re in Edinburgh which feels completely different than Glasgow.”
