Country Specific Information

Robert Gordon University has maintained its legacy as a dynamic, vibrant and modern university, where students gain real world, practical education to prepare them for their future careers.

Our strong links with industry means that many of our courses are designed by those working in industry, who actually inform course content by the skills they require from our graduates.

This has helped us gain an impressive international reputation for providing top quality education relevant to the needs of today's employers and employees.

Our students also have the opportunity to balance their study with part-time work to help develop their interpersonal and professional skills.

Students from Nepal will also find that Aberdeen already has a small, well established Nepalese community like the Nepalese Himalayan Association Scotland which welcomes our students and organises various social events throughout the year.
