Robert Gordon University and Scholarship Information

Robert Gordon University, also known as RGU or Oilthigh Raibeart Ghrdain in Scottish Gaelic, is located in Aberdeen, Scotland. Wealthy Aberdeen businessman Robert Gordon founded it in the 18th century, and in 1992 it changed its status to become a university. In the 19th and early 20th centuries, there were many adult and technical education institutions. One of the two universities in the city is this one; the other is the University of Aberdeen. Garthdee, to the southwest of the city, is home to the sole RGU campus in Aberdeen. RGU is a university with a campus.

The university awards degrees in a variety of fields, including the academic disciplines spanning from BA/BSc to Ph.D. that are most pertinent to business and industry. Also available are a number of traditional academic degree programs, including those in the social sciences. The academic and research staff at the institution also carry out research in a range of disciplines.

The university is the offspring of the different educational establishments that sprung up in Aberdeen to provide technical, vocational, and artistic instruction to adults, primarily in the evenings and part-time. In the middle of the 18th century, Robert Gordon’s Hospital was founded to give the underprivileged a foundational education and a decent start in life.

After numerous mergers between these institutions, it was initially named as Robert Gordon’s Technical College, and then, after additional changes, Robert Gordon’s Institute of Technology received its new name in 1965. It thereafter began to conduct more research and provide degree-level education. It transitioned to university status in 1992. Today, it mostly offers day sessions to full-time students. Contrary to many contemporary institutions in the UK that were founded as a result of political developments in 1992, there has never been a polytechnic, which was never a part of the Scottish educational system.

The Guardian placed first in Scotland for four topics in 2017 (health professions, journalism, architecture, and pharmacy), and third in the UK for three additional topics, according to the topic league tables. The Sunday Times ranked RGU the best modern university in the UK in its 2012 University Guide.The award has been won by Oxford Brookes University each of the preceding ten years. In addition to evaluations on the quality of its research and teaching, RGU received the 2012 prize because it had the best employment record of any UK institution. RGU was named the best modern institution in the UK in The Times Good institution Guide’s 2013 edition.
