Information for Parents

Information for Parents

Beginning university can be a daunting experience for parents as well as for new students and we know that you'll want to be sure that the university your son or daughter attends offers them help in finding their feet, making friends, settling into their studies and into student life.

Staff within our recruitment and enquiry teams at the University of Aberdeen are here to help parents and guardians as much as possible by providing advice and guidance at parents' evenings, school careers conventions and UCAS regional higher education conventions.

We've posted a series of helpful information videos for you and your child including: how to choose a degree course, studying at Aberdeen, student life and many others. There is also a video specifically for Parents and Guardians to explain the university application process and important things to consider when supporting someone through the process.

There is also information on our student accommodation options, including videos and 360 pictures of the rooms.

We are also happy to receive email or phone enquiries from parents and guardians through the contact details below:
