Program Description

The University of Aberdeen is one of the seven Ancient Universities of Great Britain and Ireland and is over 500 years old. University-of-Aberdeen (1)The University today has approximately 15,000 students and international students make up 30% of the student body, representing over 120 countries. Abderdeen is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful historic campuses in the UK and features numerous architectural treasures including King’s College, with its crown tower and chapel. Other facilities include the recently opened Sir Duncan Rice Library, the Aberdeen Sports Village and the new Aquatics Centre, the Zoology Museum which contains 75,000 specimens collected over the last 200 years, and Oceanlab, the marine research facility of the University of Aberdeen.

Aberdeen has been rated in recent years as Scotland’s safest University City, the happiest city to live, and one of Scotland’s sunniest cities. In the summer months it never gets dark, with the sun not setting until after 11 pm and rising before 4 am. Aberdeen is famous for being a global energy hub, with plenty to offer in the way of entertainment. Numerous art galleries, theatres, museums, and libraries are spread throughout the city. There are also a huge variety of restaurants and cafes to choose from, including Thai, Indian, Greek, and Turkish. Major supermarket and retail chains, as well as four large city-center shopping malls means students can access shopping places easily.

Most University of Aberdeen courses are available to students from their more than 600 degree programs. Medicine is the only discipline that is not open to exchange students. Most semester courses are 15 Scottish credits, which equates to 3.75 UMaine credit hours. The normal course load is therefore 60 credits per semester, or approximately 15 US credit hours. Students are required to enroll full-time in at least 12 UMaine credits.
