Pros

What are the best things about studying at your university?

2017

"The great sports facilities and societies. The small course size means we get efficient teaching and I like the support that's available for dyslexic students."
"The staff are fully committed to making sure that students understand the degree concepts and various extracurricular activities available. These include sports and societies that help students in making them stand out on the job market."
"Meeting people from different cultures, experiencing an international standard of teaching, being exposed to teamwork, having dedicated staff and getting exposure to industry-related softwares."
"There are good facilities like the library, which is great for concentrating and getting work done. We have great surroundings and good courses for the social sciences. There are many international students and there's a great overall atmosphere as well as a wide range of societies and sport clubs for everyone to join. The university is open and friendly with a great support system from both students, the union and the university itself."
"The teaching style for medical science is very interactive and lecturers are engaging. Students have ample access to facilities and assistance is readily available for people who have concerns about their assignments as well as emotional and financial problems. The area around the uni is very beautiful and gives a historic and prestigious atmosphere that makes students feel proud to be part of this establishment."
"The amount of diversity on campus, the library and the sports facilities. It's really useful being in the heart of the European oil and gas industry as it means our facilities are generally state of the art."
"We're in a great environment with diverse people and culture as well as highly qualified teachers."
"It's a lovely and friendly environment with lots of things to choose between for both courses and hobbies. There are also lots of opportunities for fun as well as jobs, careers advice and work experience."
"The teaching is excellent, facilities are fab and there's a really lovely atmosphere both at the university and within the city. There's excellent student support and careers services and the subject coverage is very good and gives a brilliant grounding in the subject. The medical science programmes here offer opportunities to undertake year-long placements assessed at masters level, which is also brilliant. The university and medical science school are also very supportive in helping you to find summer work placements/experience etc."
"The university sports village and sports union have excellent facilities and are well organised. The campus has a lovely ancient feel to it and it's nice to have lectures in such a scenic environment. Lastly, the university offers 'sixth century' courses (named so because the uni is in its sixth century) that allow students to take a module outside of their course. For instance, I was on a zoology degree but I did an economics module."

"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."
