Very good, a little far from uni but quite goodReport
Real sense of community and belonging in college. Tutors are very friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. Lots of field work.Report

The elective modules were rather limited, and not all of them ran each year so the choice was even more limited. We did not feel the management actually listened to the students - we did have student reps. and regular meetings, but the feedback always seemed to be either 'we'll do that next year' or ignored completely. None of our complaints were sorted. The behaviour of the students in the library / computer lab was appaling - nothing the lecturers tried to do had any long-term effect. They behaved like a bunch of primary school kids.×

There is no cash machine on campus, local shop is a 25 minute walk where a cash machine is located. Sodexho run the cafe which is expensive and the food is not always the best. There is a bar situated in Hunter hall of residence which is expensive and only open Sunday to Wednesday. The bar doubles as a rec room when the bar is closed with a large screen T.V., pool table, snooker table and darts board. This is where the residential students staying in halls tend to socialise. The grounds are great for taking walks and for spotting wildlife, owls, foxes, badgers are all present on site along with a population of red squirrels and deer. Near the halls is the outdoor football pitch which is lit. The town centre of Aberdeen is 20 minutes away from campus and there is a frequent bus service into Aberdeen which goes all the way to Inverness. There are 2 GP surgeries both 25 minutes walk away from campus.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
