Degree Link

College? University? Why not both?

Studying at college can offer a range of additional benefits to traditional academic study at university; students can take advantage of smaller class sizes, and gain practical experience, often in a work-like environment.  If you haven’t met the entry requirements for a degree course, or are perhaps returning to education, college can be a great stepping stone to further study at university.

Degree Link allows students to have the best of both worlds, to study first at college, and then to complete a degree without any time loss. Typically, Degree Link is offered on a 2+2 basis – a two year HND at college, followed by two years at university.  1+3 routes, however, are also available for certain courses, where a HNC leads into the second year of university.

Details of the Degree Link routes currently in place with each of our partner colleges:

We are constantly reviewing and updating our agreements with colleges. If your college or course has not been listed, please contact our Admissions department (admissions@rgu.ac.uk), or your college, who will be able to discuss the options available to you.

If you are currently studying at one of our partner colleges and intend to progress to study a degree course at Robert Gordon University you may be eligible to become an Associate Student: providing you with support and information about RGU before you start on your degree course. You'll also enjoy the benefits of being a student of the University while you're still at college! Find out more about registering as an Associate Student:
