Kings College Campus
A growing number of Nepalese students choose to come and study at the University of Aberdeen - and we are currently one of the 10 top institutions in the UK who welcome students from Nepal. Whether you are interested in Undergraduate or Postgraduate Study, the University of Aberdeen has a wide range of study options on offer.
Aberdeen is the fifth oldest University in the UK with an academic reputation spanning more than 500 years, and we are pleased to announce that Aberdeen is now listed in the top 200 Universities in the World. This fantastic achievement adds to our Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) triumphs in 2009. Aberdeen is amongst the UK’s top research universities, with 89% of research activity of international quality, and 55% world leading or internationally excellent. Our graduates also enjoy the highest starting salaries in Scotland — all good news for our students!
As part of our £230 million investment into infrastructure, our campus now has wireless internet access throughout all buildings across the University campus, including all bedrooms. Summer 2009 saw the completion of the Aberdeen Sports Village, and 2011 brought the completion of the New Library, which serves as a major intellectual and cultural learning centre for students in the 21st century. Construction is currently underway on an olympic-standard Aquatics Centre, which is due to open in 2014.
The city of Aberdeen is also home to the North East of Scotland's first and only Authentic Nepalese Cuisine Takeaway, Gurkha Kitchen, which is close to campus and serves delicious cuisine at reasonable prices. In addition there are plenty of shops selling imported spices and ingredients dotted around the city which are also close to campus such as Bismillah City Spice Shop and The Spice Shop, so you will never feel homesick - or hungry!
