Pros

What are the best things about studying at your university?

2018

"There are world class university facilities and a safe city. People are mostly friendly too."
"The community is great and there are lots of thriving sports clubs and societies. The state of the art library as well as the amazing sports facilities make it a great experience."
"It is in a very convenient location for me to access the many buildings and the library in a short space of time. The facilities are ideal for my area of study, such as the many laboratories and wide range of books and media available in the library. The university offers many extracurricular activities for me to get involved in such as the conservation society that offers many trips that are very interesting and relevant to my area of study."
"It's very international, the lecturers are engaging and the material we are learning is relevant to research being done today and is applicable to people's lives. There is a lot of support for careers and finding further study. There is a lot of support for first-year students socially, mentally and financially."
"We have excellent lecturers, a wide range of subjects and good depth of study. We also have great university buildings and a very good library."
"A huge range of societies and sports are on offer as well as academic writing classes being available outside of scheduled uni work and volunteering opportunities. The uni has a lot of opportunities to grab onto, but it's up to the students to go looking for them and I think this is healthy because it is teaching us to take control of our learning and become fully fledged adults instead of school children."
"Things are tailored to the oil and gas industry, which is good if that is the sector you hope to go into."

2016

"The lecturers really know their stuff and make the lectures really interesting."
"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."
"I love being at a university that's so close to the sea as I like to surf. Being so close to the countryside makes it easy to enjoy outdoor activities."
"Getting opportunities to gain work experience with my lecturers."
"Staff are fantastic. We have relatively small class sizes and hands-on lab work."
"The study abroad options were good and we're in a beautiful part of the country."
"It's in Scotland, so there are no fees and it's a good city that's not too big or too small. The university is stable in the rankings with a vibrant international community and we have some really great lecturers, especially in the Law School. The infrastructure here is great, the main building looks like Hogwarts."
"The university has strong links with the oil and gas industries and this gives us a lot of opportunities."
"Excellent library and a beautiful campus."
"It's a beautiful campus and the Aberdeen sports village is great. We have hundreds of societies and the teaching is good."
