Learn about the University's virtual learning environment
MyAberdeen is the University’s virtual learning environment. This is where you will find learning materials and resources associated with your courses and where you'll be notified of any announcements about your courses or the University.
Internet Explorer is no longer supported by MyAberdeen. We recommend using Google Chrome (or Firefox if you are in China).
On mobile devices some course features can only be accessed from a mobile browser instead of the Blackboard App.
Absence and Illness
Students should complete the relevant aspects of the Absence Form found in the Key Resources section, within MyAberdeen.
Visit our Blackboard & Turnitin Assignments for Students resource.
