Scotland has become infamous for its rabid drinking culture, with stories of children starting to drink at a very young age and Scottish folks being able to handle their booze better than your average person from elsewhere.

Although it can be fun and somewhat (weirdly) patriotic to laugh at the love of Buckfast or a Scottish person’s ability to turn any situation into an excuse to get drunk while reminiscing on your days drinking MD 20/20 in a field, Scottish drinking is so much more than a quirky aspect of our culture.

Excessive alcohol consumption in Scotland and in particular Glasgow is a part of life, and all over the world students are binge drinking, so combine student culture with Scottish culture and you create a risky environment for Scottish university students.
