Aberdeen is the fifth oldest University in the UK with an academic reputation spanning more than 500 years, and we are pleased to announce that Aberdeen is now listed in the world's top 200 university (QS World Rankings 2020 and Times Higher World University Rankings 2020). This fantastic achievement adds to our Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) triumphs in 2009. Aberdeen is amongst the UK’s top research universities, with 89% of research activity of international quality, and 55% world leading or internationally excellent. Our graduates also enjoy the highest starting salaries in Scotland – all good news for our students!
As part of our £230 million investment into infrastructure, our campus now has wireless internet access throughout all buildings across the University campus, including all bedrooms. 2009 saw the completion of phase one of the awe-inspiring, olympic-standard Aberdeen Sports Village, and autumn 2011 saw the completion of our brand new flagship Library, hailed as a major intellectual and cultural learning centre for students in the 21st century.
