University of Aberdeen

Founded in 1495 by William Elphinstone, a Bishop of Aberdeen and Chancellor of Scotland, the University of Aberdeen is the 5th oldest university in the UK renowned for the quality of its teaching and research centers in medicine, humanities, science and technology and law. Despite being considered an ancient prestigious University, Aberdeen is recognised for its innovative curriculum and teaching methods and for its steadily improving research performance in recent years. Aberdeen may be considered a balanced university with roughly equivalent numbers of men and women and an even spread of students across science and technology and arts and humanities.

Biology, Medicine, Law, and Geology are key strengths. Biological sciences have developed considerably in recent years while the Institute of Medical Sciences is one of the most advanced medical research centers in the country. The University’s connections with oil and gas industry are evident in its Geology and Energy related programmes which have a particularly strong reputation. Aberdeen’s Law school is well-known for its excellent teaching and distinctive specialties in property, intellectual property and oil and gas laws. Aberdeen is also a major center for the study of agriculture and other land-based industries in Scotland. Top sports centers, an excellent computer network and on-campus medical practices all contribute to the guarantee of a first-class student experience.
