Student Life in Aberdeen
Aberdeen is a vibrant, creative and ambitious city, known for its historic charm and cosmopolitan community. It has something for everyone, from the bustling city centre of Europe’s Energy Capital, to the beautiful countryside and coastlines, there’s plenty to see and do. Based on the North East Coast of Scotland, Aberdeen finds itself in the perfect location for mixing colourful city life with exploring miles of surrounding countryside. Big enough for the "big city" experience, student friendly Aberdeen is compact enough to make it easy to find your way around and make friends. Bustling by day and lively by night, Aberdeen is a centre for industry, research, learning and life. Aberdeen has plenty to offer in the way of entertainment. From art galleries and theatres to music halls to museums and libraries, Aberdeen is a hidden gem of culture and entertainment. The city isn’t only the Cultural Centre of North East Scotland, it’s also Scotland's Safest University City, the Happiest City to Live in the UK and even one of Scotland's Sunniest Cities. To top it off, our travel links are excellent, which means getting around the rest of Scotland and the UK is easy.
Aberdeen is connected with direct trains to London, Edinburgh and Glasgow through UK wide train services. Both campuses are roughly 15-minutes away from Aberdeen station by car or taxi with several local buses running from roads around each campus, some of which offer a Night Service. Aberdeen students will have plenty of transport links to explore this vibrant city.
