Welcome to the University of Aberdeen’s webpages for students from the Faroe Islands. Here you will find all the guidance, support, and information that you need to help you make an informed decision about your study options. Students from all over Europe have been coming to Aberdeen for decades, either as full-time undergraduate and postgraduate students, or as exchange students from one of our many partner universities through the Erasmus programme. If you are wondering what it is like to be a student in the city of Aberdeen, see the Lonely Planet Guide for lots of fantastic information.
There has never been a more exciting time to embark on studies at the University of Aberdeen. We have taken bold new steps to further enhance the student experience on offer at Aberdeen and our aim is to develop the learning and support services that we provide to ensure that our students have the opportunities to gain the skills to succeed in the global market place. This includes the completion of our Olympic standard sports centre, the opening of our new flagship library for the 21st century, and the implementation of a new curriculum for students.
The University has taken significant steps to modernise the structure, content, delivery and flexibility of our degree programmes in line with major international universities such as Harvard, Yale, Melbourne and Hong Kong.
This comprehensive review and resulting proposals will help Aberdeen graduates to leave the University academically excellent and intellectually flexible, whilst also being critical thinkers, effective communicators, and active citizens prepared for the challenges of the 21st century.
The University has a student population of around 14,500, and welcomes 120 different nationalities to its campus. Over 550 undergraduate degree programmes and over 140 taught Master postgraduate programmes are available across the areas of Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences, Education, Engineering, Law, Medicine, and Sciences.
EU nationals are eligible to have their undergraduate tuition fees paid by the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS).
Please note that entry for undergraduate studies is very competitive as we only have a limited number of places for Home/EU students. As a result our entry requirements are high and meeting our minimum requirements does not guarantee an offer of a place.
