University of Aberdeen Visiting Professorship

The Fulbright Scotland Visiting Professorship at Aberdeen contributes to the intellectual life of the university through seminars, public lectures and curriculum development in any discipline for six months.

Founded in 1495, the University of Aberdeen is one of the UK's most internationally distinguished universities.

It is the fifth oldest university in the UK, with a student population of around 14,000 and a large international community of students drawn from 120 different countries.

The university has an excellent reputation for teaching quality and research, and, over the years, four Nobel Prizes have been awarded for work carried out or begun at Aberdeen.

85% of its departments are recognised as centres of national and international excellence with students being taught by people who are at the forefront of research in their particular fields.

The university is at the forefront in many areas of arts and social sciences, in science, computing, engineering, energy and technology, and in ground-breaking disciplines focused firmly on the 21st century, such as Bio-Medical Computing Science.
