Science & Engineering Applicant Day

The next University of Aberdeen's Science & Engineering Applicant Day will take place on Wednesday 23rd March 2016. The day is specifically designed for applicants who have been made an offer to study a degree at the University of Aberdeen and as a result it is far more focussed than the more general open days applicants may have already attended. Attendees have the opportunity to meet academic staff, visit our departments and participate in interactive sessions for the subjects of their choice. They also have the chance to see the campus during term time, which gives them a genuine feel for what it will be like to study at Aberdeen. As applicants move around campus and attend talks or visit departments, they mix with students going about their daily lives on campus. They've already made the choice of making a difference with an Aberdeen degree and we're sure our guest will too as they find out more about studying at the University of Aberdeen! 

"I feel that the University of Aberdeen is one of the most welcoming Universities, and I really enjoyed my day there. The facilities provided within the departments were incredible. The campus is amazing and I am very much looking forward to studying there.”
