International students

I am an international applicant from outside the EU. How does this affect me? 

Scotland is a very inclusive and welcoming place for people from all over the world. The University of Aberdeen represents this in its daily life. We are a multicultural institution, with a multicultural population of both staff and students. We value this and believe it contributes to our ability to deliver world class education. Our Principal, Professor Sir Ian Diamond, sent personal messages to every one of our European students and staff to reassure them of the University’s commitment to Europe and the wider world.
