A vibrant, compact city with a buoyant local economy, we are within easy reach of spectacular beaches, mountains and stunning scenery. Aberdeen has been named as the Safest City in the UK (Mercer, 2016) and the Happiest City to Live in the UK (Samsung, 2014).

Aberdeen is the energy capital of Europe and RGU is the best place to be if you want to get into the energy sector, whatever your degree is. As well as this, our long-standing tradition in the fields of health and social care, business and the creative industries, means our graduates are highly sought after in these sectors too.
