We need a proper students union, however that doesn't mean you won't have an awesome time in Aberdeen

Not only as a researcher, anybody who studies and work at the School of engineering should be provided with reasonable working environment. School of engineering doesn't really care about providing the reasonable working environment for researchers, research students in general. Administrative service will keep you update with so many excuses but no solution in reality especially you are the only one who asking for help to solve an issue.

Although the student union is really just a small room with a bar (not good), the rest of the facilities are great - the library is up to date and impressive, sports facilitys are awesome and i thought the support you can get on your phone for IT stuff and my classes was good. I felt supported through my degree here and met amazing people..if you actually engage with the Uni you get alot back - study abroad programs, work placements, career help, internships, competitions and lots of opportunity to feedback problems. I liked the campus, the little shops and park areas feels like your back in time or at Hogwarts! But the virtual reality lessons and up to date computers made me feel like i was learning on the latest tech. Def a good uni for Arts degrees, don't know about other ones.

I would never recommend this school if you are pursuing a Masters in Law, researchers students teach you, and also they can be your supervisors which can led you fail your dissertation. No recommended. If you want to have fun and meet amazing people Aberdeen is great. Student Union doesn’t care about you as Student.

Honestly dreadful compared to other universities that I have attended. Foresterhill campus feels completely disconnected from the main campus. Is there even a students union? Management is poor. Even as a PhD student, I feel ignored by staff. The city itself is dismal, grey and just dead. Public transport is shocking and overpriced. Student tickets cost more than standard single tickets in other cities. Don't come here.

Very pretentious university, it is honestly dying with the city. The library environment is a good resource and the Mc Roberts building is open 24/7 for studying. The zoology museum and botanic gardens is very nice and underrated. Foresterhill is amazing.

Not a very welcoming university, as an international student it is difficult to integrate. The work ethic promoted by the university is not very motivating, teaching and quality of education is poor. Old fashioned run-down campus. Would not necessarily recommend, am changing universities.

The university of aberdeen medical has failed to meet the teaching and professional standards. I have various complaints and concerns about the quality of education that I am getting. The medical school thinks self teaching clinical Procedures is normal. They harass International students and do not integrate international students with local students who are not welcoming or friendly. I would never recommend studying at the University of aberdeen especially th medical school and physician associate program. It was extremely disorganized, racist teachers and students against Americans. The students are screaming and shouting before lectures and always on facebook. The students are very rude and unprofessional and many do not speak proper English. The professors fail to support the student and I do not even have a reagent! The quality of education and standards are th worst I have ever seen! Th city of aberdeen itself is terrines! Grey, depressing and unfriendly! Very rude and trashy

Lovely campus, great facilities, and an excellent offering of societies for a university of this size. The Students Union is unfortunately in a bit of a mess with a terrible building and too few people getting involved. Rated the career services three stars because I haven't used them - it's a bit silly that they make you rate everything.

I like Aberdeen university it's pretty fancy and old but the library etc is extremely moderen. The clubs and bars are quite far away as it's not a central university but they're just a bus journey or 10 min taxi ride away (or walk if you can be bothered). ASV is very near which is good.

Truly horrible. The teaching was bland at best, making researchers teach students when they want to be in their labs is a terrible idea. One psych tutor legitimately shouted at me in front of my class for handing in a poor piece of work because I was ill. A mate studying a STEM degree couldn't understand half of his teachers' poor English. We don't have a real union, or a bar, we're half an hour from the dreadful city centre and the bus there costs £5 a day. EVERYTHING is grey, county-wide; and you're so isolated. The halls are actually way out in the countryside with only a Lidl close-by. The uni is decidedly run-down, very 60s. I found other students to be boringly conventional and rude too. I visited friends at other unis across the UK and the difference in student satisfaction was astronomical. Save your time and go elsewhere

The university of aberdeen has such a beautiful campus which is always buzzing with activity. It does lack a union but the new renovations at hill-head student campus makes sure all freshers are closely linked together. Aberdeen societies are a great way to meet new people with an amazing sports and society fair at the start of the year there no chance of missing sign ups :)

Aberdeen is a lovely campus. A lovely mix of old and new. The kings college and new kings building are stunning and the Sir Duncan Rice Library is incredible with spectacular views on a sunny day! There is almost every book you could ever need and a catalogue to check if the book is on the shelf.

With great career opportunities after graduating it's no surprise that the University of Aberdeen is one of the best universities not only in Scotland, Britain and Europe. People from all over the world come to study at the university and to experience the beautiful old fashioned campus and the very contemporary library. The city of Aberdeen is just as beautiful as the university and he nightlife is one of the best in Scotland.

Fantastic experience. There's a great sense of community and the clubs and societies are well worth looking at (they are both inclusive and friendly). The university's degree programmes are dynamic and stimulating, and the lecturers are passionate, and for the most part prolific in their fields. I would definitely recommend giving the university a visit to fully appreciate the atmosphere.
