Robert Gordon University (RGU) has collaborated with the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) and Scottish Government to create online upskilling short courses that address the skills needs of businesses and individuals in Scotland. These courses are suitable for individuals seeking employment options and organisations wishing to upskill their employees.
Our Upskilling provision is now closed for academic year 23/24. The next phase of upskilling will commence in September 2024. If you are still interested in enhancing your skills and expanding your knowledge, we encourage you to register your interest. By doing so, you'll be among the first to know about any future funding opportunities and new upskilling courses that may become available.

RGU provides a range of support services, and the courses cover various areas of study to suit different professional development needs.
Student partnership and feedback
Providing feedback is crucial in improving the learning experience for students at RGU. The university values student opinions and encourages them to provide feedback through multiple channels such as discussions with peers and staff, engaging with RGU:Union, and participating in university events and questionnaires. RGU short course students have the opportunity to contribute their feedback through an end-of-course questionnaire, which will be used to enhance future courses. Specific and constructive feedback with suggestions for improvement can make a real difference in shaping the university's approach to learning and benefiting future students.
