Description

Robert Gordon University was at first a hospital from the mid-18th century, before becoming a technical college in 1910, and finally a modern university in 1992. This Scottish institution is named for a 17th century businessman and philanthropist who was born in the city of Aberdeen, where the university has a main campus.

The university is structured around 11 schools: Aberdeen Business School; School of Applied Social Studies; School of Computing Science and Digital Media; School of Creative and Cultural Business; School of Engineering; Gray's School of Art; School of Health Sciences; The Law School; School of Nursing and Midwifery; School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences; and The Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment.

RGU is actively involved in international exchange, and is a member of the Erasmus+ scheme. Second or third year undergraduate courses such as those in Computer Network Management and Business Information Systems are available for overseas students from the school of Computing Science.

Among the alumni of RGU are jewellery designer Ola Gorie, architect Maxwell Hutchinson, Olympian swimmer Hannah Miley, and abstract painter Callum Innes.
