University of Aberdeen
7.2 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"The geography course cohort is quite small and the department is really approachable so it's a really comfortable working environment. Over the years we have become a close-knit group and have come to know the lecturers. The university is of a comfortable size with great facilities for study and sports making it an excellent place to be for work and play. Being in Aberdeen means that you get the benefits of city living while having the countryside on your doorstep if you fancy escaping for the weekend or heading out for a walk somewhere different. There are lots of societies and sports clubs to get involved in."
