Degree / Uni Link

The Degree Link programme supports greater access to university study, providing alternative access options to those wishing to study for an undergraduate degree.

Those who have not met the entry requirements for a degree course or who feel they are not yet ready to study at university level, for example, may choose to study at a further education college before progressing to study for their degree. Degree Link means that students who complete a two year HND at one of our partner colleges can progress on to a related degree course at Robert Gordon University in its third year; some subjects also allow students to study a one year HNC at one of our partner colleges before progressing to the second year of a related degree course at Robert Gordon University.

We are constantly reviewing and updating our agreements with colleges. If your college or course has not been listed, please contact our Admissions department (, or your college, who will be able to discuss the options available to you.

If you are currently studying at one of our partner colleges and intend to progress to study a degree course at Robert Gordon University you may be eligible to become an Associate Student: providing you with support and information from the University before you start on your degree course. You'll also enjoy the benefits of being a student at the University while you're still at college! Find out more about registering as an Associate Student:
