Scotland - Friendly, Charming People, Beautiful Scenery and a Sense of Fun

Scotland is known around the globe for its friendly, charming people, its beautiful scenery and sense of fun – all ingredients which make for a fantastic learning experience.

Aberdeen, the nation’s third most populous city, is no exception to that rule, and it is clear to see why university students choose it year in, year out, for the next stage of their academic adventure.

Anyone who is lucky enough to have lived and studied in the city over the years will tell you the same thing time and again – it is a life-changing experience full of memories that will remain with you forever.

Of course, the experience is enriched ten-fold if you find the right place to live. Luckily, there are a couple of jewels in the crown!

One of Homes for Students’ exciting new properties is Powis Place, which is right at the heart of the action. It offers up a range of en-suite clusters and a choice of high-specification studios. The walk to the University of Aberdeen takes less 15 minutes, and it is only 10 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Conveniently, there is a bus stop directly outside Powis Place.

The student housing is based near to the shops on Union Street, with plenty of stores and restaurants to choose from. A brief stroll along George’s Street will see you arrive at Bon Accord & St Nicholas shopping centre, the second biggest of its kind in Aberdeen, where you can enjoy the likes of Topshop, Marks & Spencer and John Lewis.

Union Street is also home to a number of popular nightlife hotspots, catering to every kind of night out!

Fraser Studios is another brand new luxury property proudly presented by Homes for Students. It boasts a variety of specification student studios and social spaces, and is in a great location, just 13 minutes’ walk away from the University of Aberdeen and near to the hub of the action, Union Street.

Every studio at Fraser Studios comes with a large bed and study area, as well as a modern integrated kitchen. Living at Fraser Studios is an opportunity to experience the ultimate student lifestyle with all-inclusive pricing, up to 100MB WIFI and outstanding communal areas to socialise with your mates.

There is no shortage of options when it comes to painting the city red after a hard day of studying at university! Enjoy some cocktails at Ninety-Nine Bar and Kitchen or Orchid, or satisfy your tastebuds at The Tippling House.

And if you want to take it down a gear and see some of Aberdeen’s stand-out landmarks, check out St Machar’s Cathedral and Craigievar Castle. If the weather is kind, it would be a shame not to make your way to Balmedie Beach, too!

Queen’s Link Leisure Park also offers a nice range of entertainment including a multiplex cinema and several top restaurants.
