If you want the best of both worlds, Aberdeen is the perfect location.

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 (Provident survey of UK residents 2017) and has been awarded the Purple Flag accreditation for the fourth year in a row, a national accreditation recognising city and town centres that excel in managing the night time experience.

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.
