About
The third of Scotland’s ancient universities, Aberdeen was founded in 1495. Aberdeen as a city today is industrial but very wealthy as a result of many years of booming oil business (which shows both on and off campus). The university has close ties to local industry, and its engineering and geology programmes are very well-regarded. It also has a strong medical school, and hosts a number of research centres. The university is also home to The Sir Duncan Rice Library – one of the worlds 10 most spell-binding libraries due to it’s beautiful, super modern architecture.

While most multi-faculty universities boast wide degree options on offer, Aberdeen truly does stand out with well over 500 undergraduate degree programmes available. You should be able to find something compelling in that list!
