Multinational Campus and Skilled Staff
Karoliina K
United Kingdom, Undergraduate
International Relations, 2020
Overall
I am a third year history and international relations student in University of Aberdeen. I am originally from Finland but it was clear to me since quite a young age that I want to study abroad after high school. After three years in Aberdeen, I must say that I am very happy with my choice of uni! The staff is skilled and make the courses very interesting and there are many academics that are ready to offer their guidance should I need it. My favorite thing about Aberdeen uni is, however, the student community. I have made so many good friends through numerous societies and clubs. My favorite is the Surf Society; it is an awesome club with the nicest people, and the Nordic Sea is not as cold as you might think... (provided you have a thick wetsuit). All in all, coming to study abroad in Aberdeen must have been one of the best decisions I have made.

Wonderful experience in a small multicultural city
Jenny D
Hungary, Undergraduate
International Relations, 2020
Overall
The experience overall was fantastic. There were people from all over the world and the classes available were varied and interesting. The university accommodation provided in our first year was very good for making new friends and there were study spaces available all over campus. 

All the clubs and societies were extremely welcoming and feeling like a part of a group was very easy. Professors also took the time to get to know each individual student for the most part. 

The administration was slow at times, especially during the beginning of the pandemic, but they always had students' wellbeing at heart.

Overall a fantastic experience!

It's alright
Alex B
United Kingdom, Undergraduate
Engineering, Electrical, 2024
Overall
First 2 years its just studying general engineering, or in other terms, mostly mechanical and very very very basic electronics.
You don't really know what to expect of electrical engineering until you are in 3rd year, when it's already too late for you to make any changes. Optional courses are not very well thought or explained in detail what it's best for your career path. But teaching is ok, and sometimes, feedback its taken into consideration.
