Athena Study Abroad in Aberdeen, Scotland

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

The Old Aberdeen campus is the historic heart of the university and combines immaculately preserved buildings with modern facilities for learning, research, and recreation. The charming atmosphere helps students to feel at home in this Hogwarts-esque cobblestone-lined campus. Athena Study Abroad offers students the opportunity to study STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) courses in the certified University of Aberdeen, as well as a major variety of courses for almost every major!

Aberdeen is a blend of old and new, which makes for a deep study abroad experience. The students' eyes soak in the city's impressive granite buildings, letting them know history surrounds them. Aberdeen features green parks and open spaces, with a beach just east of the city and the hills not far away. Where else can students have lectures in the morning and ski in the afternoon, or sail, or wind surf, or hill climb, or canoe? The University of Aberdeen is a phenomenal choice for students looking for alternatives to England and Ireland while also being the best location for those looking to take STEM classes.
