The University of Aberdeen really appealed to me because I knew it would offer me the chance to be taught by some of the most experienced scientists working in my area of study.

At Aberdeen, we have a shared sense of pride in the University's past, combined with an ambition to make the next chapter in its history even more successful. That makes Aberdeen an exciting and very special university to be a part of.
