"My study abroad experience changed my perspectives on how to conduct my day to day life and taught me that there is always something new to be learned." - Claire, Spring 2016

"Studying abroad has really helped me become a more independent and confident person. Being in a place where I didn’t know the area or the people gave me a reason to start a conversation and get out of my comfort zone. As long as you’re open to new experiences and go out to be part of the culture, there’s no way to be disappointed!" – Aubry, Fall 2012

Aberdeen is a thriving city of 200,000. With excellent museums, great concert venues, and a vibrant nightlife, the city offers something for everyone. And its location--on the coast, at the confluence of two rivers, and near the Cairngorm Mountains--guarantees both spectacular scenery and incredible opportunities for those who love the outdoors. Aberdeen also has an international airport with direct flights to many European destinations, making it a convenient base for travelling outside the U.K.
