Is the University of Aberdeen a prestigious University?Watch

Why do you care? Surely its the degree and to a much lesser extent the social life that are important?
Aberdeen is decent but is not at the same level as Edinburgh or St. Andrews for most subjects. It has a good international reputation in medicine and in the geosciences that I am aware of. It was ranked 157th globally last year which is not too bad.
A friend when there on an open day, there seems to be one colour scheme and that is grey. Aberseen isnt that presitgious when compared with other unis in Scotland and England
It depends with which universities you are also applying to.
In scotland, it is known as one of the best, but then again, there are not many good universities in Scotland.
Overall..... not prestigous like Durham, Warwick standard, but surely just under Manchester, Edinburgh standard.
The Uni of Aberdeen has recently been climbing up the uni rankings again. It was named Scottish University of the Year, and has now even surpassed St Andrews, according to the Times Higher Education Ranking 2019.
