We’re so glad to welcome you to the University of Aberdeen family.

Being able to do a bit of advance preparation ahead of your studies can help you make a more relaxed, confident start at term time.

This onboarding section explains what you can do to get ready for online learning success.

Next steps

To help you prepare for the term ahead, your School or course coordinator will organise an induction for you. They’ll be in touch with information to help you get the most from your online learning experience, including:

  • useful information and advice on your course
  • School contacts
  • School processes and procedures.

In the meantime, you can get started with our onboarding guides.
