Overall, the experience has been rewarding and great. I loved the tutorials and the tutors. Furthermore, I got great support during writing my Master Dissertation and I could not have asked for a better tutor.
Situated on a beautiful campus in Aberdeen, northeast Scotland, Robert Gordon is an industry-led university that can be traced back to the 1800s, when it was opened as Robert Gordon’s College. Nowadays it’s home to 16,000 students and was recently ranked just outside the top 100 UK universities in the Complete University Guide’s 2023 league table standings.
Garthdee Campus is the uni’s main site and sits in a spacious parkland, alongside the River Dee. Having had £120 million worth of investment over recent years, the campus boasts top-of-the-range facilities for both study and social life.
The RGU:Union is at the heart of campus life and offers over 40 student societies and 30 sports clubs to join. You’ll also find food and drink outlets on-site and will be able to take advantage of a student counselling service, which includes mindfulness workshops and a student-led confidential nightline.
The city centre is easily accessible from campus as there’s a regular bus service which runs every 15 minutes. Aberdeen is a creative, varied and youthful city with plenty of cultural activities to enjoy. It’s Scotland’s third most populous city and is home to over 25,000 students and an exciting nightlife and music scene.
Students love it for its vibrant and safe feel, as well as its affordable cost of living. There’s also great access to the Aberdeenshire outdoors and you’ll be able to enjoy activities like surfing, skiing and paddleboarding nearby.
Aberdeen is well-connected to other major UK cities by train and it also has its own airport.
