Information for International students
The English Department welcomes students from all over the world both as undergraduates and postgraduates. We currently have students on exchange and taking full degree programmes from many countries including Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Swtizerland, Canada, the United States, Korea, Japan and China. Student exchanges are organised through the Erasmus programme and North American Study Abroad programme.
The University of Aberdeen, founded in 1495, has a fine medieval campus, excellent library resources, and a strong support network for international students. Aberdeen is a thriving, commercial city on the east coast of Scotland, with many shops, parks and restaurants. It hosts some excellent arts and musical events, and there are many activity groups both in the university and the city community. The North East of Scotland has a rich and distinctive culture, and many areas of outstanding natural beauty and historic interest, which you can explore from a base in Aberdeen.
For more information about studying full-time in Aberdeen visit the SRAS International Handbook online. This will give you more details about the University and about the city of Aberdeen. It will also give you access to the Undergraduate and Postgraduate prospectuses. These will give you detailed information about how to apply for a full degree programme or a short exchange.
