Founded in 1495, Aberdeen is an international University built on the high quality of its teaching and research. Over the centuries, Aberdeen graduates and scholars have changed the world in many fields of human endeavour.
King’s College campus is located in the historic heart of Old Aberdeen. It is a short walking distance from the city centre as well as the beach and has very good connection to the airport and the train station. Foresterhill, our medical campus, is part of Europe’s largest health campus, right next to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, the Institute of Medical Science, and the brand new Suttie Centre.

On top of the facilities mentioned above, the University has over 100 student societies and almost 60 sports teams, a very active Students’ Association, plenty of social and study spaces, including state-of-the-art IT facilities, as well as Student Support Services and a Careers Service. We are also looking forward to opening a brand new Olympic standard aquatic centre in 2014.
The University offers catered and self-catered accommodation in our Halls of Residence. All Halls offer single bedrooms, with some being right on campus, and the rest being a short walk off campus in one of Europe’s largest student villages. For more information visit www.abdn.ac.uk/accommodation
The University of Aberdeen offers over 600 first degree programmes.
