Aberdeen is the fifth oldest University in the UK with an academic reputation spanning more than 500 years, and we are pleased to announce that Aberdeen is now listed in the top 150 universities in the world. This fantastic achievement adds to our Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) triumphs in 2009. Aberdeen is amongst the UK’s top research universities, with 89% of research activity of international quality, and 55% world leading or internationally excellent. Our graduates also enjoy the highest starting salaries in Scotland — all good news for our students!
As part of our £230 million investment into infrastructure, our campus now has wireless internet access throughout all buildings across the University campus, including all bedrooms. Summer 2009 saw the completion of the Aberdeen Sports Village, and 2011 saw the opening of our new flagship library, which is a major intellectual and cultural learning centre for students in the 21st century.
