  1. 18, July, 2017 Pineapple prank marks end of successful time at RGU for Honours students

    Ruairi Gray and Lloyd Jack - Business Information Technology 488 x 325

    A pair of graduating friends have been through some major highs and lows throughout their final year at Uni – from a serious car crash which left one with a broken back, to an arty pineapple prank which saw both students interviewed by the world’s media.  


“Good tutor delivery style and offered up real examples to illustrate. Practice questions (number and frequency) and test exams were a great help.”
