Postgraduate pathway term dates

Our Pre-Masters Programme is a pathway to postgraduate study at the University of Aberdeen. The programme has multiple entry points throughout the year to allow for flexibility.

Check your programme start date

If you’re ready to continue your academic journey with a postgraduate pathway at the University of Aberdeen, you have the choice of multiple entry points based on your availability as well as your English language level.

Some Masters degrees are available for a September or January start, and some for September start only, so your Pre-Masters start date may depend on your Masters degree aim.

By researching your potential term dates early enough, you will have enough time to prepare for your arrival so you can arrange your travel and arrive in time for your induction.
