City of Aberdeen
With its sandy beaches and the Grampian Mountains, Aberdeen has more to offer than just city life. Surfing, kayaking, mountain climbing, snowboarding and white water rafting are all within your reach. It’s no surprise, then, that Aberdeenshire was named the number one region for quality of life (Bank of Scotland Quality of Life League, Dec 2010). The 2011 survey also reported that Aberdeen is the sunniest city in Scotland.

Accessible and international, Aberdeen is well connected. As the Energy Capital of Europe, the city has developed great transport links not only to the rest of Scotland, but also across the UK and Europe.

The UK’s number 1 student accommodation website (, identified Aberdeen as one of the best places to be a student, based on nearly 46,000 student reviews of 62 university towns across the UK.

The focus at Robert Gordon University is on applied research. An integral part of our purpose is to build a research base of staff and students who undertake highly relevant leading-edge research that advances knowledge and provides tangible benefits to the wider economy and society. Our success in the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) has led to substantial research grant income and corresponding significant increases in research project funding from the Research Councils, Technology Strategy Board, European Union, industry, charities and other external research funding bodies.
