Based on the North East Coast of Scotland, Aberdeen finds itself in the perfect location for mixing colourful city life with exploring miles of surrounding countryside.
The city itself has a dynamic and friendly community, known not only for being the Cultural Centre of the North East of Scotland, but also Scotland's Safest University City (Unbroken Britain Survey, Provident Financial, 2018) and is in the top 10 in the UK for places to live and work (PricewaterhouseCoopers, 2018). To top it off, our travel links are excellent, which means getting around the rest of Scotland and the UK is easy.
Big enough for the "big city" experience, student friendly Aberdeen is compact enough to make it easy to find your way around and make friends. Bustling by day and lively by night, Aberdeen is a centre for industry, research, learning and life.
