With a rich football and rugby history, it’s fair to say Aberdeen takes sport seriously. If you’re interested in sports, you’ll find golf courses, an Olympic-standard sports village and an Aquatics Centre. Plenty of places to show off your skills on and off campus.
Whether you like downtime with a touch of class or just relaxing with friends, Aberdeen’s entertainment has something for everyone. Head to The Lemon Tree or Café Drummond for student-friendly live music. Catch a film at the Belmont Filmhouse. Or take in a show at the legendary His Majesty’s Theatre.
Aberdeen is home to more than 300 castles and heritage sites. From St. Machar’s Cathedral to the Music Hall, its libraries, chapels and gardens are beautiful and welcoming. Take a break from study and enjoy a city full of incredible history.
For art lovers and the culturally-inclined, Aberdeen’s arts scene has an impressive array of collections, galleries, theatre productions and exhibitions to enjoy.
The easiest way to get around Aberdeen is by bus. We’d recommend an annual bus pass if you’re planning to use public transport regularly. Plus, in the winter, you’ll appreciate a warm ride to campus.
A pass with major operator First Bus will cost you £325 for the year and has free Wi-Fi to help pass the time between journeys. Also, it works out much cheaper than buying individual tickets during term time.
