This is the Ryanair of universities: they know their strategic position, and don't nearly have the facilities to meet demand. The true test of reviews are when something goes wrong. RGU is bureaucratic and officious, though polite. The academic staff are unable and unwilling to help when procedures don't work. One lecturer said to the class "I am just an academic and it's not my job to help". The union is sympathetic but unwilling to challenge broken procedures. The university is unwilling to take personal circumstance at all. If you are confident nothing will go wrong, it's fine enough (I received straight A's) however class sizes are enormous so there is no real ability to discuss anything in tutorials. One of my colleagues was even allowed to join the course four weeks from the deadlines, when it was impossible to catch-up. Rack 'em and stack 'em. Due to the awful service, I now have to leave my programme and transfer to another university or find a job. Very dissatisfied

RGU and particularly Aberdeen has so much to offer for international Student in every aspect. RGU is extremely supportive through the application process. The ‘Contact a Student’ platform, in particular, was remarkable. The tutors are always ready to help and go beyond expectation to help you. Also, always feel free to reach out to RGU respective teams for anything you need guidance in, you will get the best advice.

The experience at RGU has been really smooth throughout Covid. Despite the first semester starting three weeks late I feel as if the perpetration done in this period was necessary and shows it’s worth. I still manage to get onto campus enough to get a good grasp of what my course is in practice. The lectures are all on line as expected but have a good intuitive structure.

Cannot y’all for other courses but for mine there is a real problem with power hungry management whom when complained about threaten to delete the complaints or ignore it when the complaint concerns the behaviour of their own boss. Impractical marking schemes that change with each lecturer, shocking library which lets you take books out then demands them back mere HOURS later. Overall, not so much a shocking university but there’s some lecturers who don’t deserve the jobs they have, at the very least and their letting the next generation down.

Educators are supposed to educate. Robert Gordon does entirely the opposite. The Msc course that i did was poor really poor. We even complained about the professors we had and all we got in reply was that the professor is a part of the management and that it would effect our marks if we lodged an official complaint. The least responsive guidance from all staff. The attitude towards international students is the worst. I just was happy to complete my course and leave. The ad that their students get job( The percentage of Job received from the uni) is a complete lie. The Msc course in RGU is just a gimmick to make money and nothing else. I wasted a year studying here and all i have is a certificate and nothing gained in knowledge.

It's a good uni but it's also kind of a pain to get anything done unless you're a super active partaking kind of person. As an introvert I never have the chance to take part in anything as it requires seeking things out to be part of them, and the few to all invites are sent to a uni email, which I personally never check, rather than your personal one.

Very poor faculty, zero organisation, zero help towards international students, poor quality of lectures and lecturers. Not a very professional university and I was greatly disappointed when I found out my self that the links to the industry they so much brag about is a big fat lie. At least for my course. When ever I had an issue, even with the simplest things, I never received any help and most of the times they made things worse. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone, unless they just want a piece of paper and then do nothing serious with their lives. Disappointing.

Allied health professionals timetabling is shocking. Keep everything massively vague We have an exam in the first weeks of April and are being told we won't find out the date till late march. In radiography lecturers don't have enough experience (some only 2 years in practice) to be able to teach all of the subjects well enough.

I studied two years online course in mechanical engineering at RGU. I do not recommend this university for professionals with working experience who want to get PhD related to their speciality because of following reasons: 1. The quality of supervision in my case was very poor. My supervisor did not have enough knowledge and experience to guide me. I was asked by him to attend a conference in Aberdeen related to nano materials that was totally different from my area of studies. 2. I received criticisem from the supervisours in non professional ways such as " Your method of writhing is like a philosopher and not an engineer". 3. The superviors in engineering department do not have suficient work experience and some of them just have published one or two academic papers based on their profile at the university website. 4. The classes in the campus were useless. In general, the tution fee is much higher than the service you get from the university as an non EU student.

MSc courses are poor. I signed up for an MSc in International business and just before the start of the year 2016/2017 the whole course content was changed from having options to modules to having compulsory modules that are not relevant to IBM. When asked to the course leader what the motives are, she simply claimed that it was because the industry said so. This is a complete lame argument as this course if to create future managers, I have no idea what to do with a module that is aimed at starting a business while my interests are in leadership and yet there is no leadership module. Besides the content of the modules can be related to BA level as things such as PESTEL are taught. Really??? The dissertation is also removed and changed into a lame capstone module that is not even proper planned, even most of the lecturers have no idea what is going on. Also the course leader does not respond to mails......

University itself and lectures are generally quite good and interactive. I went there to complete a postgraduate, however a word of warning, with Oil in the tank, their placement promises now leave a lot to be desired. Which was the point of me applying as they have a great graduate employment rate. Not sure about 2016/17 though, Im a distinction level graduate now and cant get anything, and many of my peers from class are in the same boat. Think they enjoyed the gravy train too much of constant streams of oil linked industry picking up their students, now they have to go out there and actively get them, they are struggling. I'd give this lot a miss for next few years until they realise they need a better plan than oil dependancy.

Worked my arse off and got distinctions. Then in my final year got told that my desertation was to be on a subject I knew nothing about and had never studied there or anywhere else. Telling them this fell on deaf ears. I was promised by my supervisor that I would get loads of help and so very reluctantly went with it. (What a mistake that was). I got no help at all, supervisor was never there. During the consolidation week I made an appointment when it suited her so that I could get to grips with what I was suppose to be doing. She was nowhere to be seen. At 9pm I got an email from her saying she could meet the next day. Next day I came in as soon as the building opened, again nowhere to be seen. Eventually she turned up at 6pm. Again, was of little help. later found out she had been away to a convention getting drunk while I wasted 2 days waiting for her. grades suffered due to having this subject and scraped everything and so got a 2:2 when I was on for a 1st. Now studying elsewhere.

Travelling from abroad I had no idea what to expect, since the first day I felt like everybody was so ready to help. So many opportunities to grab and genuinely can't wait to start another year!
