Ambitious Futures Programme - University of Aberdeen

Ambitious Futures Programme - University of Aberdeen

Are you ready for a career in a world of discovery? The university sector is one of the most innovative, vibrant and exciting environments in which to build your future career. If you're looking for a graduate programme that leads to a highly successful and dynamic career in an entrepreneurial, global business, The Graduate Programme for University Leadership is it.

This cutting-edge programme will show you how the challenging and stimulating business of a university operates. You'll meet some of the most talented people in the country, if not the world, and gain an inside view into the sector's management and business processes. A key aspect of your training will see you working alongside a diverse range of partners, from students and employers to funding bodies and commercial organisations.

It's the opportunity to contribute to a life you have already experienced and enjoyed, and make a difference to the learning of future generations of students. What's more, you'll be working at the heart of fast-paced and world-leading commercial organisations that, rather unusually, are not primarily motivated by profit-making.

You'll be employed by the University and will take part in a 15-month programme split into three placements. The first and last of these will be based at the University of Aberdeen, while the middle placement will take you to a different partner university.

To be eligible to apply you must:


  • Have graduated from the University of Aberdeen in the last five years with a 2.1 degree (or higher) in any subject.
  • Eligible to work in the UK for the length of the programme
  • Be passionate about pursuing a high profile career in the university sector
