We are the 'professional university' and prepare our graduates for the world of work. We work closely with employers – to offer courses that make our graduates particularly desirable to local, national and international companies and organisations.

Many of our courses are the result of close collaboration with industry, focusing on both the day-to-day and future professional needs of businesses and other organisations. This means that our graduates learn the necessary skills and are always strongly in demand. Many of our courses have industry exposure in the form of workshops, guest lectures, field trips and practical experience.

Robert Gordon University is pleased to welcome every year a large number of Indian students and Aberdeen has a large community of people from India who have chosen to make our city their home. As a result of this, every year you’ll find celebrations to mark Diwali, Eid, Guru Nanak Gurpurab and many more.
