While we are looking forward to welcoming you to the Aberdeen family as a postgraduate Masters student in September 2020, we understand that these are uncertain times and that your plans might be subject to change. Whatever your circumstances, you have a number of options available.

You can join us on campus

We are busy getting ready to welcome students in person to campus in September 2020. Physical distancing and other health & safety measures will be in place. Students will be issued with face masks and hand sanitiser. We will be guided by the latest advice from the Scottish government. The health and safety of our students and staff are our top priority.

You can start online and join us on campus later on

The University is working hard to make sure that students who are unable to join us in-person on campus in September can start their studies online and join us on campus at any stage during the 1st term once they are able to do so. Once you have finished the online registration process for September, you can let us know your intention to start online in the Student Hub.
