University of Aberdeen Undergraduate

Founded in 1495, the University of Aberdeen is one of the UK's most internationally distinguished universities, combining ancient tradition with the best in modern teaching and learning facilities. It has a student population of around 14,500 and a large international community of students drawn from 120 different countries. With over 650 first degree programmes, the University has an excellent reputation for teaching quality and research, and, over the years, four Nobel Prizes have been awarded for work carried out or begun at Aberdeen.

Students are attracted by our tradition which is rooted in our 500 year history - but we are focused firmly on the future and are 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. A number of our degrees offer students the opportunity to undertake an industrial placement, or period of study abroad, and 97% of our graduates enter into good jobs, research posts or further study within six months of graduating.

We are committed to helping students settle in quickly, achieve their ambitions and develop their talents and interests. Here you'll find study options to suit your academic interests, and social and leisure activities that will contribute to your overall well-being, enjoyment and personal growth. We also have over 150 sports clubs and societies for students to join, not to mention our own radio station and weekly newspaper!

We offer the very best learning and support facilities for students. We have one of the largest and best equipped libraries in Scotland, the largest wireless campus in Europe and a Support Service that provides friendly and expert guidance on a range of areas - academic, personal, medical and financial.

Curriculum Reform: The Difference
There has never been a more exciting time to embark on studies with the University of Aberdeen. Our aim is to further develop the learning and support services that we provide to ensure that our students are well supported and have the opportunities to gain the skills to succeed in the global market place. This includes the completion of our £28million Olympic standard sports centre, the development of a flagship library for the 21st century, and the implementation of a new curriculum for students.

Following an extensive review process, which saw engagement with top employers, professional bodies, academics, the Government, and current and prospective students, parents and teachers, the University has now taken significant steps to modernise the structure, content, delivery and flexibility of our degree programmes in line with major international universities such as Harvard, Yale, Melbourne and Hong Kong. This comprehensive review and resulting proposals will help Aberdeen graduates to leave the University academically excellent and intellectually flexible, whilst also being critical thinkers, effective communicators and active citizens.
