Robert Gordon University attracts a small number of students from Bangladesh each year. The main area of interest for students from Bangladesh is our postgraduate courses in Business and Engineering. Increasingly students from Bangladesh are showing interest in our wide range of courses which relate to the Oil and Gas industry, and also our course which relates to public administration (MPA).
Bangladeshi students will find that Aberdeen already has a small, well established Bangladeshi community and various social events are held throughout the year.
