Welcome to the University of Aberdeen and thank you for your interest in our institution. The University of Aberdeen is a broad-based, research-intensive University, and we put students at the centre of everything we do. Outstanding in a wide range of discipline areas, Aberdeen is credited for its international reach and commercialisation of research ideas into spin out companies. The University has over 21,000 matriculated students and 3,600 staff representing 130 nationalities. We are ranked in the top 200 universities globally (Times Higher Ranking 2023), 13th in the UK Guardian University Guide and we are ranked 2nd in Scotland, Wales and N Ireland for student satisfaction (NSS 2023). We encourage bold thinking, creativity and innovation, and we nurture ambition with many opportunities for professional and personal development in an inclusive learning environment which challenges and inspires.
As a community we live by our values of Respect, Inclusion, Trust, Integrity. These four values are more than just words, they are behaviours that we ask all of our employees to live by, whatever your role in the University.
