We are proud to announce that in recent years, we’ve welcomed a growing number of students from Oman choosing to come to study at Robert Gordon University.

Oman flag 152Popular courses for Omani students include our MPharm, Human Resource Management, and courses in our Oil and Gas Centre. 

Our students from Oman tell us they find Aberdeen a friendly, historic and cosmopolitan city that caters for all lifestyles, tastes and cultures. Omani students generally have found it easy to adapt to the city as it is small enough to find their way around, served by good local public transport but which also has the buzz of a thriving student social scene.
