Great university with modern new facility’s, help always available if needed. Every teacher/lecturer I’ve met have been very friendly and helpful. Engineering facility’s are very high spec and new, making it a very enjoyable good learning experience
Fun gaming hall at uni, not a lot of information about the websites and facilities for new RGU students though.
Modern facilities, helpful staff, loads of great lecturers! We could benefit from more learning spaces across campus and food outlets.
it is quite convenient to get to the university. teachers are conscientious and friendly. They always help as much as they can. I have a good experience there.
Perfect experience in Roberts Gordon University.
So far my experience at university has been very positive and I cannot think of how it could be better.
Very good course, practical and teaches you real world stuff not just all theory
A very good university in Aberdeen. It also ranks in top 5 schools in Scotland with respect to its gold standard in teaching
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
Great higher education provider
Very friendly staff, beautiful university.
Due to covid restrictions, there are areas i have not yet explore and other students in my class, i have not yet met other than online class
Beautiful campus amazing staff and union. Just a lovely place to be
RGU is a great university overall, with staff who are friendly and are always available to help. The facilities are also fantastic.
Great library. A lot of societies to join.
I loved the people on my course, the location and the lecturers! Everyone was so welcoming and the resources were perfect.
Robert Gordon University has such a great facility for subjects such as Architecture and Built Environment subjects. The Students Union is considerate of everyone and calls for more students to be involved.
Pharmacy students have N501 for mock dispensing but this could be used much better. Labs are good standard and staff are very helpful. Lecture theatres are either comfy or in dire need of refurbishment.
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.
My time spent at Gray’s was filled with so many opportunities, memories, good and bad decisions and a whole lot of laughter. I learned a lot and I’ll miss it dearly
super good university, I loved my time here and I’m gutted to be graduating and leaving but feel really prepared for the world of work that is ahead of me thanks to the team and tutors at RGU
Good community at rgu full of nice people
It's a good university, I'm overall happy with the quality of education and teaching excellence. The staff is usually really helpful and course gets constantly updated so the content will be up to date.
Amazing school and nice environment
I thoroughly enjoy my time at RGU.
I haven’t had much experience on campus due to covid but I have tried my best to enjoy the year as it is
The staff and teachers are very nice. The information system is much better than that of York University where I was before
Very good university! I am really enjoying studying there.
Excellent place even through the pandemic. They’ve been very helpful
Uni itself is great but lecturers are decent
Lots to get involved in, great careers services
Needs new management in my opinion, would not recommend
Modern, Facilities are great, love the societies
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.
Can i do top up with my English course to business management bachelor in this college?? To get my bachelor in another subject
Really great university. The facilities are really modern. It’s always clean. Everyone is friendly.
Excellent support for everything
Everything is great there. Except for the food. As an Asian. I WANT MY RICE. Always keep up to date with university newsletter. I only wish RGU would make food more variety as I have sandwiches and pizza almost everyday.
Uni that actually supports you in your studies.
Needs to have more society action
Staff are on hand to help where needed and advice is given well.
Amazing experience. WiFi needs work as it often gets overloaded with the amount of people using it.
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.
Loving studying at this university, such a great campus
Friendly staff and very helpful
University has a great view and a good place to study at
University has a great view and a good place to study at
Excellent university with very supportive staff who are happy to help!
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.
Great uni with everyone helping out when needed
Beautiful campus in a rural location. Staff and student union are very helpful and enthusiastic. It’s so easy to get involved with social clubs/sports to meet new people! Great experience
Nice modern buildings with friendly staff always keen to help.
Lovely university, large campus but easy to navigate, great facilities
I wasted one year of my life here studying masters and failed it. I would not recommend to anyone else, the staff just don’t care about pupils, they need to remember we pupils are paying their wages.
Wish I'd never gone. 3 years I'll never get back
I love RGU. Staffs are very cooperative and always willing to help. I also love the company.
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.
The uni has fantastic facilities and loads of opportunities to get involved with student life! The careers services and other support are brilliant, you feel like you’re really being prepared for the world of work. The only issue is eduroam often disconnects and can be very slow
Good uni, but limited social aspect. The Student Union isn’t brilliant but they’re trying very hard to improve it.
Very poor quality of education. My experience is related to studying PhD of mchanical engineering after 13 years industry experience. I quit the PhD program because of poor supervision and quality of the course
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.
Eduroam is more unreliable than that pal who'll say he's game for a night out but always cancel before hand. Pretty fast when you can connect but.
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.
Shocking uni, no social life, uni is miles away, just crap
The RGU Campus is amazing so far!
