University of Aberdeen
7.8 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 65 ratings in 2018)
In a few words
"The location is ideal as the university buildings are quite close instead of being spaced out around the city like some universities. My student accommodation was clean and suitably located for my first year at university. During the day, facilities such as the botanic gardens and the science museum are interesting places to visit."
