Develop and maximise the potential of your workforce

Robert Gordon University offers a solution based approach to the supply of training and education products and services to the international oil and gas industry.


We create the programmes you need, not the programmes we think you need.

At RGU we work with corporate clients to create learning and development programmes that are appropriate and tailored to their current business needs. Integral to that customisation is flexibility of delivery. We deliver training in Aberdeen or overseas, face-to-face or online. Many of our programmes are delivered to global clients through blended learning - online learning supported by classroom-delivered sessions in-country.


Based on RGU's core expertise and products we can develop customised learning programmes leading to academic qualifications.

Corporate educational programmes include a wide range of postgraduate and professional development courses, including specialist Oil and Gas Masters programmes. From a tailored modular course leading to a Graduate Certificate, to Masters programmes with additional company or industry specific workshops, we can help you realise the full potential of your workforce.

How we work

Business Services at RGU work in close partnership with customers and with the Oil and Gas Industry to achieve customised and relevant education and training programmes.

Bridging competency gaps and building capability can deliver a driven and focussed workforce that can make a difference now and for the future.

Programmes that are customised and flexible are developed following careful consultation and discussion with clients in order to understand specific business needs and constraints.

Contact Us to learn how we can help drive your business forward by developing your best assets - your employees.

Short Courses

RGU can offer Oil and Gas industry relevant customised training programmes for staff development in existing, emerging or changing oil and gas markets.

Short courses, ranging from a few days to a number of weeks, can be customised from across the University's wide range of expertise in Oil and Gas engineering, management, IT, health and safety. Our flexibility allows us to design programmes of appropriate duration and content with the customer, for delivery to suit the client's particular business needs.

“Tullow has been working with Robert Gordon University to deliver Introduction to Oil and Gas courses to some of our key community and local government stakeholders in our countries of operation including Ghana, Uganda and Kenya. It's a great chance for everyone to develop some understanding of oil and gas and to destroy some common myths...and the courses are almost always oversubscribed!”
