COVID- 19 UPDATE

The University of Aberdeen is following government safety guidelines. We aim to offer on campus courses again in March 2021. However, for those applicants that do not wish to travel or prefer to study in the comfort of their own home there is always the online option available.

We hope that this decision removes the uncertainty for our students and offers a way for them to be able to prepare for study at the University of Aberdeen in the safety of their own home.
