University of Aberdeen

Study for a Degree in Scotland

University of Aberdeen

Leading in the 21st Century

85% of Aberdeen’s staff are working in departments that are recognised as centres of national and international excellence, so students are taught by some of the best.

The University is at the forefront in many areas of arts and social sciences, in science, computing, engineering and technology, and in ground-breaking disciplines focused firmly on the 21st century, such as Bio-Medical Computing Science. 97% of Aberdeen graduates walk into good jobs, research posts or further study within six months of graduating.

Choice and Flexibility

Flexibility and individuality are the University’s real strengths. With over 590 first degree programmes on offer, students can mix, match and switch subjects as they discover new interests on route to their tailor-made degree. Students are encouraged to ‘tag on’ subjects that not only interest them but will be useful and will make them attractive to future employers. The University has numerous international connections with universities in North America and across Europe, affording students the opportunity to study abroad as part of their degree.

A Superb Environment

The University has a beautiful central campus where ancient buildings sit side by side with modern, newly refurbished, first-class laboratories, up-to-date computing facilities and the latest library technology. A place in University Halls is normally guaranteed to all students during their first year, and these are either on, or within short walking distance of the main teaching site.

Social and sporting facilities are outstanding. The University has first-class sporting facilities on-campus and over 50 sports clubs to join. There are also over 100 societies for those with other interests, whether they be political, spiritual, theatrical or musical. The city of Aberdeen truly has something for everyone – from the bustling city centre of Europe’s energy capital to the superb countryside and coastline in an area rich in historic and natural interest. Students describe Aberdeen as having an unrivalled social scene, which caters for all tastes in arts, culture, leisure and entertainment. Communication and travel links are excellent, which means getting around the rest of Scotland and the United Kingdom is easy.
