Our professional placement options teamed with our industry links and accreditations has resulted in our consistently high graduate employment level. Over the last decade we have had one of the best records of any UK university for graduate-level employment and we have been quoted top in Scotland and fourth equal in the UK for graduate employment by Destination of Leavers in Higher Education Survey 2016-17.

We have recently launched an exciting new Innovation programme which sets out to empower our students and staff to help them develop and support their entrepreneurial ambitions. Our programme helps to push the boundaries of and set the agenda for the fourth industrial revolution.

A £135 million construction project at our Garthdee campus was completed in 2015 and provides our students and staff with state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities. This includes a new library, and formal and informal learning and social spaces for students. This development gives the university and our local community some of the best facilities in the UK. Indeed, the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey, published in 2018, quoted RGU as number 1 in Scotland and top 10 in the UK for the quality of our facilities.
