We are in the process of establishing an alumni association for our Hong Kong alumni but in the meantime we can put you in touch with individuals on a request basis. If you are interested to speak with one of our Hong Kong alumni to find out about their experiences of studying at Robert Gordon University, email us at international@rgu.ac.uk and we can connect you to a HK alumnus.
