I was wondering If members of this university can give me there opinions of the area and also the university,

Im thinking about studying engineering at aberdeen and i am wondering what the nightlife is like and also how the area is set out?

I currently live on merseyside which is obviously a huge distance from aberdeen and im just confused about whether it would be hard to live such a distance away from home ..

Thanks for your opinions

Search function is your friend! basically everything you mentioned has been asked in the last few months. As for how it's set out google maps! Union street is the main street so just type that in. 'union street aberdeen' then have a look at maps and streetview.

My opinion is- do NOT let distance even slightly determine your uni choices!
An hour-two-ten... it doesn't make a difference!
Go somewhere you like. With a course you like.

Oh, and about aberdeen, I think it rocks. Im starting there in 5 days and have had a load of ace holidays there.

Im starting at aberdeen uni next week and i've come from Merseyside aswell i wouldn't worry about the distance! Your still going to be able to stay in touch with everyone at home
Aberdeen is a lovely place been coming here since I was little and i've been told repeatedly that the night life is good!
You should come up and visit the uni it would be worth it to get a feel for the place!

Might seem like a stupid question... but what precisely is a 'gruff'?

I'd take a guess at posh people or according to the last bit of the urban dictionary then it's a ned. :dontknow:

Unless cold weather kills your brain cells and makes you unable to think it's a legend...

It's basically the same as everywhere else. I haven't studied at any other universities but certainly for my course at least we are accredited by the GMC like every other uni so the courses must be similar in content

Oh and you like some good music. Darkest Hour ftw :p:

Depends what you find "hard". I studied last year at Abertay Uni (in Dundee) and coming up to Aberdeen this year I haven't found it hard, although I do find the method of teaching different.

For instance Labs.
In Abertay we used to get a demonstrations and briefed through the experiment, here we just read it in our own time and get on with it. I find this "hard" only due to my lack of confidence in chemistry.

However its NOT hard, its only going to be as hard as you make it. And quite frankly. I LOVE IT HERE!!!
