Living in Aberdeen as a student

Aberdeen has many nicknames - ‘the oil capital of Europe’ for example – but the most important thing for students to know is that it is Scotland’s third most populous city so you won’t be short of a friend or two! Not only is it one of Scotland’s most prosperous cities, but it also has everything you could want from a University town – except for warm weather! If you do choose to study at Aberdeen make sure you pack a coat or three!

The University of Aberdeen was founded back in 1495, offers over 400 degree courses, and was recently named as The Times and Sunday Times Scottish University of the Year (2019). We can’t forget about Robert Gordon University either, which has the highest rate among UK universities for graduates in employment or postgraduate study six months after graduation. This all adds up to a lot of attractive reasons to choose Aberdeen as your place of study.

Not only are there plenty of educational opportunities in Aberdeen, but there are also some awesome ways to relax and unwind as well. If you’re looking for some distraction, then head to the world-famous Aberdeen Science Centre or The Gordon Highlanders Museum. If the great outdoors is more your thing, then the Aberdeen Coast offers plenty of opportunities to explore, and you may even be lucky enough to see Dolphins. Yes, they do get Dolphins in Scotland!

The music lovers amongst you will already know that Aberdeen is the birthplace of such legendries as Emeli Sande and Annie Lennox, and the musical heritage doesn’t stop there. There is a thriving nightlife in Aberdeen, from live music performances in the Tunnels to live comedy – really something for everyone.

If you’re a shopaholic then you do not need to worry either – Aberdeen offers you plenty of opportunities to splash your cash! There are not one, not two but five shopping centres, plus Rosemount and the Granite Mile. So, whether you’re a high street shopper, a vintage lover or want to support your local independent boutique you’ll be spoilt for choice.
