My university has an excellent standard of teaching, with the teachers having an excellent rapport with the students. The societies are diverse and welcoming, with a high athletic standard and great strive for academic excellence.

There is no student Union, there’s no campus bar and the uni does extremely little to nothing to organise events or anything to help you meet people when you arrive. The facilities are good however there’s no university sport facilities, it’s shared and because of this the football pitches are booked out throughout the week by Aberdeen FC. The courses are ok however some of the compulsory courses are awful and most lecturers don’t record their lectures which I think is an abomination.

Campus is beautiful, staff is nice. Student union is largely thought to be poor. Food and drink at canteen is expensive. Physics department is small, but the large majority of staff within are very approachable and deliver a high quality of teaching. Library is really good, but sadly not 24h opening for majority of the time.

The University of Aberdeen is a really lovely city campus, the buildings and streets are really beautiful and all amenities are within a short distance from each other, although some of the lecture halls are a little outdated. Sports facilities are great, Aberdeen Sports Village is probably one of the best sports facilities in Scotland, and there are a wide selection of sports clubs and societies to choose from. The union is a nice place to chill out, although we are one of the only universities in the UK without a union bar, but there are plenty of great bars and clubs in Aberdeen which are popular with students.

Campus looks great and easy to navigate once gotten to know. Many places to just sit and chill between classes and plenty of places to get food. Course is really interesting. The student union could do with some more tables, some with less chairs so instead of 6 spaces more tables for 2 or 4

I feel that university's staff are passionate about their work, however, the facilities here aren't always the best. Studying in all is great, academically its very engaging and i'm very happy with my degree. Living here is awesome, the community is so international and amazing The lecturers are very interested in what they teach and are very engaging and passionate about their courses - staff is very diverse.

Hundreds of societies to chose from and great coffee and places for lunch and a catch up. Building is old but gives it a Harry potter feel to it

The location, organisation, plethora of courses, teaching staff, and many societies and sports teams at Aberdeen University deserve a 5 star rating!

We have a pretty brilliant student union, they organise some great activities and nights out, as well as serious stuff, like careers fairs, that are actually really helpful. The campus might not be the most beautiful, but the facilities are very good. The library is huge with loads of seating (this is a big deal!) and the gym is really good

The library is wonderful, it has all the books that are required in my course. The lecturers are attentive and are willing to clarify any topics that we might not have understood during the lecture

The university is absolutely stunning. The staff are all very professional and available to help mostly with very instant replies. The course I am doing is particularly well run. The careers services are second to none and the nicest people you may ever meet. The student Union is somewhat disappointing in comparison to the likes of other universities in Scotland. The entry requirements are somewhat higher than other universities but worthwhile hitting them for the support you can achieve. The sports options are amazing too.

Aberdeen uni is good. Typically backwards and money grabbing like any other university. Mass disruption to students learning during strikes which should have been quickly negotiated and understood by the uni. Don’t have a student union

Well, the university is generally quite good. I find the facilities to be acceptable and for the most part the staff to be effective and enthusiastic. Not all of them but oh can’t expect all staff to be great I suppose. There are also some admin issues which grate upon me and my fellow students somewhat and some technical issues regarding internet access and access to university sites at crucial times. However I am largely pleased with the service offered by Aberdeen uni and the campus itself is great.
