We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Situated on the eastern Scottish coast, Aberdeen is one of the northernmost cities in the UK, but is nonetheless the third largest in Scotland. There are two universities in Aberdeen, with around 30,000 students living in the city and its surrounding area.
Aberdeen's history and identity are closely tied to its coastal position. It has a long association with shipbuilding and ocean fishing and is still an important centre for research in aquaculture and marine affairs.
Since the later twentieth century Aberdeen has also been an important hub for the exploitation of North Sea oil, but its energy industry is now diversifying, with significant research and investment in renewable sources.
Aberdeen offers a number of unique attractions and opportunities that enrich life for its postgraduate students. The extensive use of granite in the construction of the city's many nineteenth-century buildings has given Aberdeen a striking appearance, reflected in its common nickname 'the Silver City'. Particularly impressive examples are to be found in the city's major theatres, art galleries and other civic buildings.
This unique architectural style is complimented by Aberdeen's many attractive parks and gardens, which have won the national 'Britain in Bloom' competition a record number of times.
Beyond the city you'll find opportunities to explore striking coastal landscapes or visit other Scottish towns and cities and, if you're interested in going further afield, you'll find the city offers a surprisingly frequent coach service running as far south as London.
The two largest providers of postgraduate courses in Aberdeen are the University of Aberdeen and Robert Gordon University. Both have long histories, trading their origins to 1495 and 1750, respectively.
The University of Aberdeen is in fact one of the oldest universities in the English-speaking world and usually ranks within the very best 150-200 institutions worldwide.
Robert Gordon is renowned for its professional and technical programmes and usually ranks well in these areas.
