There are just under 400 undergraduate courses available at the University of Aberdeen that can mostly be studied in a flexible and individual way.
The uni believes that you should be in control of your degree programme as much as possible, meaning you can mix and match different subject areas and switch if you find a new area of interest. This gives you more control over what subjects you learn about and what you eventually graduate in.
Although you’ll state a specific programme on your application, you’ll actually be admitted to the relevant degree programme as a whole, rather than a particular subject. This makes it easy to switch between subjects within your degree programme, e.g., a student who began by studying English may end up graduating with a degree in history or international relations.
In line with other Scottish establishments, undergraduate degrees at Aberdeen usually take four years to complete. In most cases, you’ll choose a few subjects to study in your first two years, before specialising in the final two years.
