The beautiful University of Aberdeen dates to 1495 when it was founded by William Elphinstone with the founding principle of ‘Open to all and dedicated to the pursuit of truth in the service of others.’ It is the 5th oldest university in the UK and many of its original subjects are still taught to this day.
There are 12 schools:
There are two campuses at Kings College (1495) and Foresterhill, both linked by bus. Kings College is situated in historic ‘Old Aberdeen,’ which provides a visual feast of heritage and the stunning contemporary Sir Duncan Rice library. The library boasts 360-degree panoramic views across the city, harbour and beach.
The university encourages major innovation and researchers have won five Nobel prizes from ground breaking discoveries such as life changing Insulin, the development of the first MRI scanner, partition chromatography, radioactive isotopes, and advances to fight world hunger.
Aberdeen is a cosmopolitan sea trading city which offers an eclectic mix of beautiful granite architecture, cobbled streets and modern retail experience whilst being home to a global oil and gas industry. The city is surprisingly close to Royal Deeside, the seaside and beach, and it is easily connected to the highlands and islands.
Research-led teaching offers a rich student experience of academic knowledge combined with the latest thinking and application to industries and organisations worldwide. University of Aberdeen is ranked in the top 30 UK Universities (The Complete University Guide 2019) winning a Queens Anniversary Prize for Research Innovation in 2018 for over forty years sustained research in health and economics to improve surgical outcomes, public health and more.
