Program Description:

University of Aberdeen

Program Overview

Located on the northeast coast of Scotland, Aberdeen is the country’s third-largest city and home to a University that has been a center of excellence for five centuries. Founded as King’s College in 1495, Aberdeen has distinguished itself over its long history as a center of research, boasting five Nobel laureates among its distinguished faculty, with discoveries taking place in areas as varied as chemistry, agriculture, physics, and medicine. 

This spirit of innovation continues today through Aberdeen’s strength in STEM and many other subjects, commitment to research, and numerous international collaborations. The university is ranked internationally in many subjects, including divinity, agriculture, and anthropology, and is among the top 20 universities in the UK, with high rankings in sport science, medicine and dentistry. Aberdeen is also renowned for environmental science and hydrocarbon/renewable energy studies linked to the North Sea oil reserves. Aberdeen offers courses across twelve different schools and Arcadia Abroad students can choose from a wide variety of offerings.

Known as the granite city for its shimmering grey building facades, the city of Aberdeen is located on the North Sea and retains a small-town feel. As it is a bit further north, you may need a warm coat for the twenty-minute trip to the beach. You’re within immediate reach of gorgeous Scottish landscapes and will enjoy living among friendly, congenial Aberdonians.

One £250 scholarship is available each semester to students on Arcadia’s program at the University of Aberdeen. Recipients of this award will be expected to complete a co-curricular project based in the northeast of Scotland. For more information, please contact your Program Manager.
