Aberdeen is a friendly, historic, cosmopolitan and prosperous city that caters for all lifestyles, tastes and cultures. It is fast gaining popularity as one of the UK's student cities. Aberdeen has good air connections via London, Amsterdam and Paris. Taiwanese students find it easy to adapt to the city as it is small enough to find their way around and served by good local public transport.

We try to visit Taiwan twice per year at least, but out with those visits we have trusted agents based locally who can tell you more about us, and help you with an application.
