Robert Gordon University

The university derives from Robert Gordon’s Hospital, an institution set up in the mid-18th century to provide the poor with a basic education and reasonable start in life, and the various educational institutions which developed in Aberdeen to provide adults with technical, vocational and artistic training, mostly in the evenings and part-time. Following numerous mergers between these establishments, it became Robert Gordon’s Technical College in 1910, then following further developments became Robert Gordon’s Institute of Technology in 1965 and began to conduct increasing amounts of research and provide degree-level education (by now mostly offering day classes to full-time students). Finally, it became a university in 1992. Unlike some modern universities in the UK, which were created following the government reforms of 1992, it has never been a polytechnic (these were never part of the Scottish education system).

RGU is an innovative, accessible, impactful and professionally minded university, with a student population of over 16,000 from more than 132 countries. RGU’s applied learning, contemporary course content, industry-centric approach and state-of-the-art facilities ensure their students are work ready when they graduate.

The University has been recognized in the Teaching Excellence Framework as a Gold Standard institution, placing them in the top 20% of the best universities in the UK for the quality of their teaching, learning, support and graduate employability. Students will learn in their purpose-built and modern facilities during classes, and relax outside of lectures in the tranquil parkland.

RGU is the Scottish University of the Year (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021), recognised for its teaching excellence, student-centred approach and is consistently named as one of the top UK universities for graduate employability.
