Country Specific Information

Malaysia

Robert Gordon University is very proud of the links it has with a number of institutions in Malaysia and the strong reputation we have built up over the years.
Malaysia flag

Our Malaysia students enjoy the benefits of our small and supportive classes which allow them to receive a high level of guidance and support from their academic expert lecturers, enhancing their learning experience and often accelerating their commercial awareness. Aberdeen is the Energy capital of Europe, so is the right choice for many students from Malaysia who want a career in the energy sector, whatever their degree is. Alongside our excellence in Energy, our long-standing tradition in the fields of health and social care, business and the creative industries also means our Malaysian graduates are highly sought after in these sectors too.

Aberdeen is a safe, friendly city and studying at RGU provides Malaysian students with a multicultural experience in a peaceful surrounding.
