Leaving home for the first time can be one of the most exciting things about going to university. It’s an opportunity to live independently, meet new people and make new friends – and because Aberdeen really is a truly student-focused city, you’ll meet people from all over the world.

We have heavily invested in our support networks both on and off campus to make the experience of studying at RGU the best it can possibly be.

Many of our services and facilities on campus are available for the local community to use, together with our students and staff members.

It is important to register with a doctor (GP) as soon as you arrive in Aberdeen.

Going to university isn’t just about getting a degree, there is an entire lifestyle that comes with being a student. Studying is a big part of the experience, but there are also many opportunities available which will allow you to try new things, meet new people, and make the most of your free time.

Studying at University is an exciting and rewarding experience. For some it also brings changes which might at times be difficult and stressful. The Student Counselling & Wellbeing Service is here for you.

Created by students for students. Student life can be fun, exciting, enriching or even scary and daunting at times.
