Opportunities for you


Going into final year? 

Thinking about what to do after you graduate and how to improve your job prospects? We offer students considering postgraduate study a range of ‘conversion’ programmes, which means you don’t need to have studied the programme at an undergraduate level.

Our range of cross-discipline and taught research degrees give students the skills they need to excel in their chosen area. For more information email study@abdn.ac.uk

Gaelic is currently undergoing a national revival with increased support across all parts of society.  You can pick Gaelic as a subject even if you have never studied it before and expect to reach a good intermediate level within two years.  If you already know Gaelic there are also opportunities for you to keep practicing your language skills.
