Aberdeen is famed for its granite buildings and elegant architecture. From its foundations in a strong maritime heritage, and its position as an ancient seat of learning, the city embraced the discovery of North Sea oil, and rapidly developed into the Energy capital of Europe and a thriving centre for multinational businesses. At the same time, Aberdeen has blossomed into a modern cosmopolitan city, with a thriving cultural scene, shopping and restaurants to match.

Aberdeen has an enviable resource of academic, professional, technical and business skills, an international reputation and a quality of life second to none. Over the last three decades Aberdeen has been transformed from a provincial regional capital depending on fishing, farming and tourism, to become one of Europe's most enterprising cities and an exciting place to study or do business.
