Lovely campus and fantastic hosts showing us around the University. Some lovely architecture set against the river and over looking Aberdeen. Further out than I expected but a lovely place to visit.

I gained a degree here several years ago, it has a great range of courses and different ways to study. The campus is now based in one area with some great views across the city and countryside. Easy transport links too.

This is one of the best universities in UK. A progressive university that usually tops employment and education polls such of that of the Times. I was really impressed when I visited there, some fantastic facilities for students.

I can vouch for two things... an amazing culture and best professional education. It is a beautiful campus with river Dee flowing beside. You can actually walk up to the river and take a break in between the classes.
