We are delighted to welcome a growing number of students from Vietnam coming to study at Robert Gordon University each year.

Vietnam flag 152Our Vietnamese students are interested in a variety of subjects ranging across the whole university; however some of the most popular are Accounting and Finance, Architecture and Construction and Engineering.

Our students from Vietnam tell us they find Aberdeen a friendly, historic and peaceful city that caters for all lifestyles, tastes and cultures. Vietnamese 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.
