Course summary

Learn from expert, research-active staff

The University of Aberdeen has a long history in the sciences and the Undergraduate Foundation Programme is the best way for international students to benefit from this. Equivalent to the first year of your undergraduate degree, you will still graduate in the typical four years it takes to complete a degree in Scotland.

What will I study?

Programmes at the International Study Centre are specially designed to prepare you for undergraduate success. On this pathway, you will study core academic modules based on developing your English language and career skills, as well as studying subject-specific modules in the subject route you choose to follow.

The University of Aberdeen prepares students for their chosen engineering specialism by designing the first two years of their engineering degrees around a general engineering curriculum. This introduces you to chemical, civil, electrical and electronic, mechanical and petroleum engineering and ensures you have the flexibility and choice to decide on the right degree for you in the third year of your studies.

Progress to your degree

The Undergraduate Foundation Programme in Physical Sciences & Engineering has a wide selection or progression degrees based on your chosen subject route. Depending on your career ambitions and interests, you could progress to either a BEng, BSc or MA degree. In Scotland, an MA (or Master of Arts) degree is an undergraduate degree equivalent to a BA degree.
