What are your plans after graduation?

My current plans after graduation are to go back to America and pursue postgraduate education to the PhD level. Then I plan on eventually getting a job at a university and doing some combination of research and teaching.

What is the weather like in Aberdeen?

The weather is not as bad as you would expect and not as bad as people make it out to be. Aberdonians love to whinge about the weather. It does not rain as much as one might expect and it is frequently ranked as one of the sunniest cities in the UK (for what that's worth).

What is living in student accommodation like?

Living in halls for your first year is essential to a normal uni experience. And it is super essential if you don't know anyone when arriving as I didn't. It helps you to make friends and get used to living life without your parents. It provides a year of transition and learning before you go out and really fend for yourself.
