The city of Aberdeen lies on the northeast coast of Scotland with miles of beaches, dunes, and cliffs. Aberdeen is big enough for the “big city” feel, but is compact enough to make it student-friendly. The historic campus is located on Old Aberdeen, just a fifteen minute bus ride from the bustling city-center. The city hosts cinemas, museums, galleries, and leisure and sports facilities, and has a fantastic nightlife. Not far away are the Scottish Highlands with castles, mountains, and miles of North Sea coast land.

HOW IT WORKS
Meet with a Study Abroad Advisor
Meet with your academic advisor to discuss courses
Complete the study abroad application process*
Pay UWL resident tuition
Pay housing and meals to the host institution abroad
Spend your semester or academic year in Scotland!
*Students MUST first start the UWL study abroad application
process. Students can ONLY start the University of Stirling application
process after our office nominates students.
Students studying abroad for 1 semester will NOT need to apply for a student visa prior to
departure. However, they will need to provide required documentation in order to
receive their student visa upon entering the UK. Students participating in an academic
year ARE required to apply for a visa before departure. Get more information about
students visa @ GOV.UK**
NOTE: UWL DOES NOT arrange student visas. Students are required to independently
arrange for their student visa and need to be aware that this is a time sensitive
requirement that will include an additional out-of-pocket cost.
Students may request either self-catered or catered living.
Catered living will include meals on particular days. Program
fee will adjust to reflect housing choice.
Students who are interested in studying abroad, but do not meet eligibility
requirements, are encouraged to make an appointment with a study abroad
advisor. We will assess each situation on a case-by-case basis.
Students will pay ONLY UWL resident tuition while abroad, even if the student is currently paying out-of-state tuition. Students need to be enrolled full-time with a minimum of 12 credits hours. Please refer to the Budget Sheet at the top of this online brochure for more information. Exchange programs are very competitive and placements are limited. However, students who are not offered an exchange placement can still participate in this program as a direct enroll student. This means that students will be billed University of Aberdeen's tuition rather than UWL resident tuition.
