The University of Aberdeen Development Trust is a charity registered in Scotland, no. SC002938 which aims to raise funds for the benefit of the University of Aberdeen and its commitment to excellence and innovation.

We aim to support the University’s students, teaching and research while preserving its unique heritage, strengthening its links with the community of North Scotland and supporting the University’s commitment to internationalisation.

Launched in 1999 to mark our sixth century of existence, our recent Sixth Century Campaign was hugely successful, surpassing our ambitious £150 million target. Almost 8000 graduates, charities, organisations, friends and supporters made gifts to the Campaign and enabled us to surpass our ambitious target, allowing the University to invest in a wide variety of projects including areas such as capital builds, scholarships, history and heritage, student experience, research excellence and academic posts.

We are committed to building on this success and need your continuing support to enable us to ensure that the University maintains its reputation and achieves its future ambitious aims and objectives.
