Our role in the community can be traced back nearly three and a half centuries to the birth of Aberdeen merchant and benefactor Robert Gordon in 1668. The university’s focus is democratising education internationally, so that communities in Scotland and across the globe can benefit from world-class graduates that are real-world ready.


RGU Aberdeen is Europe’s capital of Energy, and we offer a range of Energy related postgraduate courses to support your career development in the sector.

And our commitment to innovative research also ensures we pursue cutting-edge solutions to problems the world is actually facing today. A learner-centric approach, supported by our state-of-the-art facilities and flexible course structure makes education work for our students, staff and partners. Not the other way around. Through our graduates and partnerships, we believe we can make tomorrow brighter than today.

RGU is ranked 34th in the world for its Graduate Employability Rate in the QS Graduate Employability Rankings (2019), which is higher than institutions such as Harvard, Oxford and Cambridge, and demonstrates how appealing our teaching methods, facilities and reputation are to industry.

We are committed to helping every single student become as attractive as possible to future employers. To help us achieve this we have invested in the development of our campus to further enhance our teaching facilities and offer the most up-to-date technology. The use of technology in our teaching extends across many subjects and we have always been proud to be an early adopter of innovative methods that enhance the learning experience.

At RGU we use an ‘applied’ teaching approach. As well as providing you with the necessary academic and theoretical understanding of your subjects, we try as far as possible to ensure there are practical elements too. These practical elements come in the form of industrial placements, internships, consultancy projects and voluntary opportunities. Whilst the vast majority of our undergraduate courses include a professional placement, almost all of our MSc courses will include the opportunity to do an academic or professional consultancy project in the form of a research project or dissertation. This is a great opportunity to develop your subject knowledge and industry related exposure.
