The University of Aberdeen is one of the UK’s most internationally distinguished universities. It has a student population of around 16,000 and a large international community of students drawn from 120 different countries.

As Scotland's third oldest university, it has been at the forefront of teaching, learning and discovery for over 500 years. And as the ‘global university of the north’, it has consistently sent pioneers and ideas outward to every part of the world. 

The University of Aberdeen is ambitious and research-driven with a global outlook, committed to excellence in everything it does and  also as World top 200 university (QS World Rankings 2019 and Times Higher World University Rankings 2018). The University could not have reached this position without the support of many generous benefactors.
