Positives: library is really modern and amazing to study in, the number of international students is really high which makes meeting people from all over the world really easy. Negatives: If you want to study business at this uni: don't, business school is an absolute joke and uni doesn't seem to care. The city is very small, grey and there isn't much going on (besides society events). It's also not bike friendly.

The uni really has everything that you could expect. It’s a fairly classic setup, it’s not boring and it’s conducive to a classic uni experience. There’s lots of things to do it’s just a matter of exploring. The student union also send endless emails so it’s impossible not to know what’s going on.

I am currently studying Civil Engineering and cannot recommend the University enough. As a previous Marine Biology student of Stirling University, I am blown away by what it is to finally have a real education (do not go to Stirling, seriously). The teaching facilities and top class and the Duncan Rice library is something to behold, although I cant help but think how many more computers they could fit on each floor if it weren't for the big holes in the middle. Aberdeen Sports Village is in partnership with the University and has everything: Huge gym, indoor and outdoor running tracks, 2 full size football pitches (indoor and out door), 2 hockey pitches, 50 metre pool, Olympic dive pool and much more - all available to students at a cheap price. There are several places to eat and socialise from Starbucks to food courts, but no traditional union to speak of. Instead we have The Bobbin and Red Lion - bars practically on campus. Phenomenal student support! We are valued.

The University of Aberdeen is a great University, there is many societies you can join and the facilities on campus are very good. The Sir Duncan Rice Libary is also very useful when you just want a quiet space to study (if you can find a space).

I entered Aberdeen University in 2014 and was one of the 'mature' students put into temporary accommodation. I felt very segregated because of this because I was not put into halls like most students and this made my social life more far more difficult - which was incredibly unhelpful as a music student. I had a very long and arduous battle just to get into the university. Having now graduated I sometimes wish I never have had bothered putting myself through such a ordeal but there were few benefits - finding work/experience and meeting new people (eventually). I was also dyslexic and had other learning difficulties and I really felt 3rd and 4th year just went really downhill - I was very unhappy with how the course was run with the communities programme, lecturers for various reasons, no help from dyslexic advisor (off all term) combined with strike action on another course I was studying and I could feel my physical and mental health failing.

While considered one of the ancient universities, there is little celebration of history or traditions present. The campus is worn and classrooms need to be cleaned/repaired/painted; too much is paid to executive salaries and not enough spent on upkeep or student enrichment. Leadership is mediocre and does not run the university as a modern institution, too much micromanagement. It craves international students but provides zero support and has been outright hostile in their treatment of them. Faculty are overworked and not able to reach the potential they could if academic units were staffed appropriately, and there is too much reliance on the student union to address student needs with the university not doing nearly enough. Don't go here if you have other options.

Positives: beautiful main campus, well-stocked, spacious & awesome library, lecturers seemed professional, passionate & eager to share their own research (in the Archaeology & Anthropology department anyway), course feedback is helpful (though often late), easy to change courses or apply for exchange, loads of interesting societies. Negatives: The city is grey, cold and depressing, personal and mental health support is almost non-existent, Student Union is inactive, very little sense of student community, nothing to do in the city except a few pubs and clubs and a cinema, transport is expensive, no good social spaces for students (even if you're not very social it's nice to have somewhere to hang out between lectures). TLDR: High standard of education, though more theory than practice. Varied societies. Bleak city and lack of social hangouts on and off campus makes it easy to become isolated. I would highly recommend not going here if you have poor mental health/aren't outgoing.

A miserable, tacky, trashy, basic, nouveau-rich hellhole. Aberdeen has to be the world's most depressing city. Unless, you want to have a miserable student life and to develop suicidal toughts, avoid this university at all costs! Aberdeen's weather is on a league of its own. It's excruciatingly cold, dark, rainy and insanely WINDY throughout the whole year. The fact that every single building is Aberdeen is GREY and made out of cold, dour granite, further contributes to inducing the locals into a state of utter despair and depression. Everyone in Aberdeen seems to be either drunk or depressed at all times. No words can quite describe how utterly miserable Aberdeen is during the winter. The whole city is empty and devoid of life as there's very little to do since the city's main avenue is scattered with trahsy one-pound shops and McDonalds. The uni itself is not bad (pretty much a mid-rank uni for average/below-average students). However, the city itself is utterly miserable. Avoid!

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.

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

I have never used career service, hence, I cannot give an honest answer. The campus looks really nice, like Oxford's.

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.

Taylor library is the best library because nobody goes there. Students tend to be disgusting as they do not know what a paper tissue is.

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 :)

While I do realise it might sound like a cliche, I actually feel like I belong here. I realise that my university is not a world-leading insitution but I think it is more student-friendly than others and really cares about students' experience.

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.

Haven't signed up to societies yet but there seems to be a big range. Also don't know too much about the union or career options. The campus is gorgeous and the library seems really useful and has been well designed.

Having the mountains on your door step, the ocean on your door step and a fantastic campus with WiFi all over is absolutely brilliant! Brand new facilities are being built and it's a really exciting time to start a degree at the University of Aberdeen! And its not THAT cold....
