Achieve a prestigious Masters or PhD and enjoy Scottish Golf from the University of Aberdeen

Students have a unique opportunity to combine academic excellence with the privilege of playing golf on Scotland’s famous courses as part of a new initiative launched this week.

The College of Arts and Social Sciences Graduate School is offering all students embarking on research or Masters Degrees (including the MBA and PhD Research Degrees) the benefit of playing golf during their time of academic study at the University of Aberdeen, beginning in September 2007.

Scotland, the birthplace of golf, has the oldest and most prestigious golf courses in the world, many of which are located close to Aberdeen.  This week's announcement is timely - coinciding with the annual US Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta. 

Students have the option to receive the golf package which includes lessons, practice sessions and student membership of a local links golf club as part of their overall academic package (free of charge). 

Professor Angela Black, Director of the Graduate School, is delighted to launch this as one of the University's unique initiatives.  She said: "The intellectual quality of a postgraduate education is underpinned by our internationally recognised academic expertise at the University of Aberdeen and will be further enhanced by non-academic activities which enrich the life experience of those participants. 

Our academic achievements are evidenced through path-breaking publications by our academic staff in highly respected, internationally peer-reviewed journals.  

Providing students with the opportunity to combine serious academic study with the option of playing golf gives our graduates the advantage of linking a prestigious Scottish education with a historical global sporting tradition."

Recognised by the Times Higher World Rankings 2006, the University of Aberdeen, founded in 1495, is one of the world's top 200 Universities. Ancient traditions are combined with strong academic qualities where education is delivered in a supportive, dynamic environment which has at its heart a beautiful and historic setting and a culture of initiative, enterprise and entrepreneurship.

The College of Arts and Social Sciences is centred on six prestigious Schools: Business; Education; Divinity, History & Philosophy; Language & Literature; Law; and Social Science.

The University of Aberdeen continually strives to provide the best all round experience to all students.
