Robert Gordon University, commonly called RGU, is a public university in the city of Aberdeen, Scotland.

It is a dynamic, modern place to study with an international reputation for providing high quality education from undergraduate through to PhD level. The diverse and exciting range of degree programmes are taught in state-of-the-art facilities by specialists who maintain close links with the world of work. A number of postgraduate courses are available via distance learning through the University's online learning environment. Today RGU delivers more than 300 courses to over 16,000 students from 120 countries.

The university is structured around 11 schools: Aberdeen Business School; School of Applied Social Studies; School of Computing Science and Digital Media; School of Creative and Cultural Business; School of Engineering; Gray's School of Art; School of Health Sciences; The Law School; School of Nursing and Midwifery; School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences; and The Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment.

Robert Gordon University's modern, high-tech campus at Garthdee overlooks the River Dee. The emphasis is firmly on vocational and professional courses – indeed, it calls itself "The Professional University" – and a wide range of placement options is on offer, in Britain and abroad. As a result, the university has one of the best graduate recruitment records in the UK (first in Scotland).

 

 The city is in the north east of Scotland and has good air, rail and bus connections from most UK cities. Aberdeen attracts photographers, artists, sailors, surfers, kayakers, kite enthusiasts, rowers, walkers, golfers, mountain, rock and ice climbers, snowboarders and white water rafters. Aberdeen is a smart and pleasant city with a cosmopolitan and rather wealthy feel to it. It's affectionately called the Granite City after the primary building material, and it really does sparkle in the sun. Within minutes of leaving the city centre, you can be surfing off the Aberdeen coast or in the heart of rural Aberdeenshire.
