Study Abroad

Aberdeen Business School offers its undergraduate students the opportunity to take part in Study Abroad programmes across Europe, North America and South East Asia, with no extra time being added to their degree.

All of our partner institutions teach in English, so students can get the international experience of a lifetime without having to know a foreign language, although there is the option of learning the basics before and during their stay.

Find out more about this incredible opportunity by looking at our New Horizons brochure or by contacting us at the Global Engagement Centre Office via email - ABSGlobalEngagement@rgu.ac.uk

All current Erasmus and Exchange students, should go to RGU Erasmus and Exchanges page for applications and other information.  Non ABS students should visit the RGU study abroad page.

For Students at our Partner Institutions

Programmes such as our Summer School are available for groups of students from other higher education institutions around the world. The Bachelors Link Programme is tailored for students at one of our partner colleges throughout North America who wish to spend one year in Scotland and achieve a Bachelors degree.

Scholarships and Aid

The online-platform european-funding-guide supports students and PhD candidates finding financial aid for their studies. For the first time in the UK, a special matching-method searches a database with more than 12,000 scholarships of which 4,000 are specifically targeted at UK students and shows each user the matching scholarships for his or her curriculum. The database contains a variety of scholarships that support students e.g. paying their cost of living, financing their semester abroad or supporting them during their dissertation. In addition, the platform provides numerous templates for applications and articles about how to apply for a scholarship.

Summer Programmes

Each year Aberdeen Business School offers Summer School programmes for groups of students from higher education institutions around the world providing visiting students with a full educational, cultural and social activity programme and enabling them to experience the best of Scotland.

The Summer School Programme at Aberdeen Business School is part of the Europe-wide Summer Schools in Europe initiative. Participants of our Summer School have the opportunity to improve their knowledge and skills and also experience some of culture, social activities and magnificent scenery that both Aberdeen and Scotland have to offer. The topics for our summer programmes include; Scottish Culture; Business Creativity, Tourism & Hospitality and the ABS taster programme.

It includes individual and group activities, company visits to renowned local and multinational businesses, and invaluable presentations and case studies relevant to the students’ area of study. We actively encourage our international students to take advantage of many of the exceptional activities available in Scotland while they are here.

ABS hosted its first Summer Programme for students from Chinese universities in July 2015. The programme gave students an overview of the undergraduate courses offered at Aberdeen Business School, as well as introducing students to Scottish culture and heritage through a number of educational visits. The students also participated in a business creativity project while on campus. Please email Ling Wang, the programme co-ordinator in China, for further information.

The ABS Summer School Programme is open to students from the following Chinese universities:

China University of Petroleum (East China) (China)

Qingdao Agricultural University (China)

Hebei University (China)

Qingdao University of Science and Technology (China) 

Please note: All our courses are taught in English.

Bachelors Link

The Bachelors Link programme offers the chance to study abroad to international students currently on a relevant associate degree at one of our partner colleges throughout North America. The programme provides advanced entry into the third year of one of our internationally recognised Bachelors degrees.

After just one year with us you could graduate from Robert Gordon University - ‘The UK’s Best Modern University’ - with a Bachelors degree and an international experience that will not only boost your CV but could even come to shape you as a person. Many students have found that our tuition fees are more affordable than at universities and colleges in North America, so coming over to Scotland for a life-changing experience and a degree you can be proud of may also be cheaper than you think!

Merit based scholarships are currently offered to students gaining advanced entry to our courses through a formal agreement with many US and Canadian Colleges, see the list below. For details contact the Study Abroad Office at your local college. The Bachelors Link programme offers the chance to enhance your further education by studying abroad while also experiencing life in another country. This is a fantastic opportunity to study abroad in the student-friendly city of Aberdeen in the NE of Scotland. Aberdeen is within easy reach of Scotland’s breathtaking landscapes and historical sites, diverse sports and outdoor facilities, and cultural centres and cities such as Edinburgh and Glasgow.
