My initial thoughts about coming to RGU have most definitely exceeded my expectations, now half way through my undergraduate degree. I have been highly impressed with the additional support teaching staff provide to students and the dedication they have to ensuring that we get the most out of our learning experience. Something that makes RGU unique as a university in Scotland is the emphasis on the practical skills aspect of our learning and developing our skills and practical applications of our learning to prepare us for the workplace. The university as a whole creates a social and welcoming environment to students and emphasises the importance of the social aspect of university, with an immense range of extracurricular activities to get involved in and I think as students, it is great to see that the university values our needs out with our learning and taking time to relax and escape from the stresses that studying can bring at times.

If you are studying Health Sciences I have never regretted my choice to study at RGU. If I have to be picky my course has been beyond challenging, adjustments could be made to better support mental health and inclusion. The campus is a fresh and modern home-from-home with lots of events occurring throughout the semester (e.g. the bike race), there are lots of events for sports and the majority of clubs welcome all levels. The support on offer to students varies depending on your applicability but at least for my course I have been supported through placements, volunteering and job opportunities that you can't get at another university. There is a high employment success rate and my course is within the highest ranking in the UK! I feel lucky to study a competitive course here, yes there are things I would improve but I still believe RGU has given me lifelong experiences that I would not gain anywhere else. I would not change a thing about applying here!

Robert Gordon is an excellent university. The campus is full of modern buildings, each one is different from each other. There is plenty of options for food on campus. There is great facilities such as the gym and swimming pool. The university is very accessible with buses running frequently. The university offers plenty of opportunities to join societies and clubs with all interests covered

There were too many people on my course which amounted to low attention to student needs and lack of diversity. As a masters student myself he university didn’t care about student family life by requiring us to be at the university premises four days in a week. Information is not tailored and sometimes to vague that the important information get lost in between too many information, I.e online students emails isn’t separate from on campus email which means there’s sometimes contradictory information.

Postgraduate Law Student - 2022 to 2023 Some lecturers are great, very informative and always willing to help. But the odd 1 or 2 are pretty useless and have little to zero communication with the class. The admin support from the Law School is quite bad. Poor response time (if they even respond) and they usually try to palm you off with a generic response rather than actually looking in to the issue. As a whole, I would have reservations about undertaking another course at RGU due to the lack of admin support

My experience at RGU was good due to the course content and structure, helpful staff members, placement options and teaching facilities. However, there needs to be many improvements in terms of bringing students together through social spaces and events (RGU Union) as well as bringing life into both the Garthdee area and Aberdeen. There are hardly any shops, restaurants and enjoyable activities making student life very lifeless and uneventful. It is extremely difficult to secure PAID part-time jobs in Aberdeen as most opportunities are voluntary. I had to use my own savings and was under extreme financial stress (not much funding for students from England either). The Student Ambassador scheme also pays very little. Locals in Aberdeen are unfriendly and stare at you weirdly if you are from a different background or speak in an english accent. This was quite unwelcoming and uncomfortable. Overall, RGU did offer a lot mainly in terms of my course (MSc Digital Marketing).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
