We think across borders.

We are a Scottish university that was founded with international connections. We are open to people and ideas from around the world. Whether in Aberdeen or in Qatar, we welcome students and staff from all nations.

Through outreach and the exchange of ideas, we will teach and research across borders. We already rank among the best for our global outlook. We will continue to expand our networks and partnerships, and seek new opportunities for international and intercultural exchange.
