Student support

Students of RGU are provided with plenty of support to help them to make most of life at Robert Gordon University.

North East Scotland College students who have signed up to be an Associate Student of RGU can take advantage of a range of services available at the University.

A dedicated team of advisors at the Study Skills and Access Unit can arrange one–to–one or small group sessions to provide advice and support on university applications, exam preparation and revision, presenting written work, English for non–native speakers, tackling coursework assignments and other topics. Associate Students also benefit from an ongoing communication with the University and designated visits to RGU during which they can see the campus and meet the lecturers.

All students making the transition from College to University will also be invited to attend an Orientation session. This is a half–day programme during the Induction Week in September and covers essential study skills for University, library induction and an introduction to CampusMoodle.

When students start studying at RGU, they will benefit from additional support including:

  • The Student Help Point — located in the Faculty of Health and Social Care — is a one–stop shop for all non–academic queries, support and advice. The dedicated staff can help students with matters ranging from travel to tuition fees, accommodation, filling out various forms, finance or free–time activities.
  • A Careers Service which provides a full range of services designed to meet students' individual career planning, job search and employability needs.
  • The Disability and Dyslexia Advice and Support service aims to make RGU's learning environment accessible to everyone, as well as help students with specific support needs.

Further services available to students include the Chaplaincy, Treehouse Early Care and Education Centre, Counselling and International Student Advice, Visa and Immigration Service among others. For more information on the full range of support available to RGU students, please visit:
