  • "A degree from Robert Gordon is as near to a guarantee of a job as you can get. Few graduates were unemployed six months after leaving last year - just 3.8% - the lowest rate of any state-funded university in the country. It's the same every year at Robert Gordon, which has the best graduate jobs record of any university." The Sunday Times University Guide 2012

“The course really helped me to prepare for forensics work in practice. I gained a lot of experience in scene-of-crime work, and even had the opportunity to provide evidence in a mock court room.”
