Over 550 degree programmes to choose from
Flexibility and individuality are our real strengths. We know from experience that flexibility is very important in preparing our students for a world today in which new graduates need a wide range of knowledge, understanding and skills.
With over 550 first degree programmes to choose from in our Course Finder, you may not be quite sure of what you want to concentrate on - or even which degree you want to aim for. At Aberdeen, you are admitted to a degree course rather than to a subject or department you can usually study any subjects which interest you and even change direction as your interests and ambitions develop. This applies especially to MA and BSc students. Beginning with a broad base of three or four subjects - traditional in the Scottish degree - gives you the freedom to plan your own programme from a wide range of options. So you can mix, match and switch subjects as you discover new interests on the route to your tailor-made degree.
You'll get the opportunity to become a truly well-rounded professional - adding a language, perhaps studying abroad, going on a work placement, combining traditional arts with social sciences, and much more...
We encourage you to study subjects that not only interest you but will be useful and will make you attractive to a future employer. This means you could add a course in science or law to your arts degree. Similarly, you could add a modern language or management studies to your science degree.
And, as you work towards your degree, your own personal Adviser of Studies will be on hand to guide you through and give you all the help you need.
