University Of Aberdeen Postgraduate
Founded in 1495 by Bishop Elphinstone, the University of Aberdeen boasts 500 years of excellence, and has secured a position as a leading international learning centre in the 21st century. Associated with five Nobel Prize winners, we have a proud heritage in teaching and research and focus on equipping our postgraduate taught students with advanced knowledge and techniques in specialised or cross-disciplinary areas of study.
Our results speak for themselves— within six months of graduating, 96% of Aberdeen students go on to employment or further study, and some of our degree programmes provide students with industry placements as well as incorporating chartered examinations in to students’ periods of study.
With 500 years of excellence and five Nobel Prizes under our belt, we continue to be recognised as a world leading institution. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework, over three quarters of the University’s research was classified as ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’. We have a focus on impact and innovation in our research, a fact intertwined in our strong history of pioneering discoveries. We offer a stimulating, supportive and inspiring environment working alongside exceptional researchers in top-class facilities.
