Program Summary & Location
The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire & the University of Aberdeen established a bilateral exchange agreement in 2016, after exchanging students through a Wisconsin-Scotland consortium for many years prior to that. You can study at Aberdeen for a semester or a full academic year.
Founded in 1495, the University of Aberdeen is the third oldest university in Scotland and the fifth oldest in the U.K. With a student population of 13,000, Aberdeen offers nearly 90 majors in three Colleges: Life Sciences & Medicine, Physical Sciences, and Arts & Social Sciences. You can find complete information at http://www.abdn.ac.uk/.

Housing & Meals
At Aberdeen, you will stay in one of the Hillhead Halls, a group of residences, with a range of services provided, and a corresponding range of costs. You can choose between "catered
accommodation," which comes with a meal plan or "self-catered", which means you have access to a kitchen where you cook your meals. You can find details here
