Deciding which university to attend is always a difficult decision to make. My decision to come to Aberdeen to study at Aberdeen University admittedly was a last minute one (that is another story…) and although it is far different to what I expected it to be, I’m glad I made the decision to move...

“Good But Grey”

Both universities have campuses spread out over the city, but their main buildings are close to...

“What a hole”

published 12/03/2001

ProGreat University; good nightlife; top law school.

ConsWhat a dump.

When the sun shines Aberdeen is a breathtaking city. The huge granite buildings seem to soar, the beach is vibrant and gold, and the sea roars up onto the sand. However, the sun never bloody shines in Aberdeen. In all the time I spent there, almost four years, I can remember around two sunny days...

ProGood courses, teaching methods, and transport.

ConsWeather!

Where to begin... The main campus of the University of Aberdeen is located in Old Aberdeen, to the North West of the city, just south of the River Don. It is ten minute walk from the main campus to the city centre, and there is a bus route that runs from campus to centre every 15 minutes during...

Consthe jokes about sheep!

“Great for 4 years”

published 09/08/2000

Prosee the other reviews

Conssee above

After reading other reviews on Aberdeen Uni I had to put the record straight. Yeah, its a good place, good standard of teaching, good student accomodation, pretty cobbled streets in the uni area but I swear after 4 years you'll be ready to leave. Don't go if you dont like rugby, the scots, other...
