Welcome to the Aberdeen Family

Start your journey with us

The University of Aberdeen International Study Centre is located right in the heart of campus at the University of Aberdeen, offering programmes designed to prepare you for a successful study abroad experience. Aberdeen is all about community and, when you start at the International Study Centre, you will be a part of this from day one. The support of your tutors and classmates, as well as University staff and other students, ensure you will feel right at home in Aberdeen.

Depending on your age and career ambitions, you will spend up to four years at the University. One or two of those years can be spent with us at the International Study Centre, before completing the remainder of your undergraduate or postgraduate degree at the University. Our pathway programmes are delivered by Study Group in collaboration with the University. By including our pathway programmes within the usual timeframe of a Scottish degree, our pathway programmes don’t increase the time you spend at University.

Love from Austria, smiling at the camera.

The UK system is more of a university-wide experience. It is a fresh start. You make new friends, you join a sports team, you join societies and clubs. So that just gives you more of a sense of community, a sense of real university feeling."
