(Student Profile)

Samaila Adelaiye

1643.jpg I chose Aberdeen because the University has a good number of international students and I also loved the mixture of the old style architecture with a very modern twist. I've really enjoyed my studies so far, there is much more academic staff and student interaction than I had expected – I've really benefitted from this personal touch.

I've found the student accommodation really great and it's good to know that if I run into any problems at anytime of the day there is always someone I can talk to. I've learned a lot from fellow students here.
