Matthieu: Matthieu Vailhé, from Normandy in France.

STS: What do you miss the most about Glasgow and Scotland?

Matthieu: Scottish people, pubs and ERASMUS spirit.

STS: What one place in Scotland was your favourite?

Matthieu: The Arches bar in Glasgow City, Caledonian Court - our accommodation and the West End in Glasgow.

STS: Do you think it's important to get out and about in Glasgow and Scotland when you study here?

Matthieu: It's not important, that's crucial.

STS: But enough about Scotland. What are you doing with yourself now?

Matthieu: I've created a company in Normandy in France.

STS: Have you been back in Scotland since you first left?

Matthieu: Yes, I have.

STS: If you could offer any one piece of survival advice to someone about to study in Scotland what would it be?

Matthieu: Do not stay too much with only ERASMUS people. Go to meet scottish people!

STS: Cheers for taking the time to chat with us. All the best.

Matthieu: That was a pleasure.
