The North of Scotland Universities Collaborative Project will be hosting a number of events this June supporting school pupils from across the region in thinking about future careers and pathways. We will be hosting five events this summer, including information sessions for students interested in careers in Medicine, Nursing, and Allied Health Professions, a student life session featuring students from across the region, and important information for pupils who are beginning to research universities or subject choices for the future.

As restrictions allow we hope to increase our in-person activities. Pupils and their families can now book onto our Enhanced Campus Visit days (4 August – 27 October), which will allow small groups of prospective students to meet staff and students and explore our beautiful campus. Bookings for these visits are open at the following link: We also hope that we will be able to host our Saturday 2 October Open Day in person; more information will be published online nearer the time.

We’re also really excited to launch our new Ask Aberdeen podcast, aimed at prospective students who want to learn more about the University from those who know it best – our staff and students. Episodes will be released weekly on all major podcast platforms – pupils can subscribe for reminders of new episodes. More information can be found here:
