Robert Gordon University
Robert Gordon University provides industry led undergraduate and postgraduate courses leading to highly relevant awards and degrees. The teaching staff have an outstanding reputation for quality and academic research and our track record in graduate employment is amongst the best in the UK. RGU were one of only three Scottish Universities that received the gold award for the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework.
The range of degree courses include online degrees as well as traditional taught courses in subjects as diverse as art and design, management, engineering, health and social care. Resonating through our culture is the desire to foster relationships with local, regional and global communities to develop socially responsible citizens and promote ethical behaviour.
A research hub was established in Stromness in 2018 as part of the RGU Orkney Project, a multidisciplinary initiative dedicated to supporting the islands with research, expertise and student activity to help overcome challenges faced by the local community.
