Lovely campus and fantastic hosts showing us around the University. Some lovely architecture set against the river and over looking Aberdeen. Further out than I expected but a lovely place to visit.

This is one of the best universities in UK. A progressive university that usually tops employment and education polls such of that of the Times. I was really impressed when I visited there, some fantastic facilities for students.
