What Our Students Say
BA (Hons) Management with Marketing, from Aberdeen in Scotland
Why did you choose RGU?
When applying to different universities, RGU was one of the most modern, bold and interesting I came across. I loved how the university was devoted to giving experience to students and how they could turn us into job ready individuals. I really liked how RGU promoted the university as a social place as well as a place of learning and how much opportunities they presented.
Why did you choose the course you are studying?
I chose Management with Marketing because out of all the courses I was looking to do, it appeared to be the only course offering a broad overlook into management as well as the opportunity to specialise in a specific field. The placement and study abroad opportunities for the course were very attractive.
What are your favourite things about being a student in Aberdeen?
Being a student in Aberdeen has allowed me to see more of the place I have grown up in. Despite having lived here all my life, as a student I have discovered more places to socialise, eat, and drink etc.
Have you been involved in any clubs or societies while at RGU? If so tell us a little bit about it
I have just recently joined the Duke of Edinburgh society, which has allowed me to finish off my Gold that I started in academy. I do however wish I started a sports club when I first came to university and I will definitely be looking to do this in second year.
Do you have any advice for people who are considering study at RGU?
My advice if you are considering study at RGU is to definitely come to the open days and the Applicants' Days. They really allow you to get a feel for the campus and the people here. This is key as it is where you will be spending four or more years of your life. It also makes sure that this is the place for you.
What do you want to do when you complete your course?
When I complete my course I am currently stuck between postgraduate study and going straight into a job. I feel both would benefit my career hence why I’m still not sure. However, I still have three years to decide this.
