RGU is ranked 34th in the world for its Graduate Employability Rate in the QS Graduate Employability Rankings (2019), which is higher than institutions such as Harvard, Oxford and Cambridge, and demonstrates how appealing our teaching methods, facilities and reputation are to industry.

We are committed to helping every single student become as attractive as possible to future employers. To help us achieve this we have invested in the development of our campus to further enhance our teaching facilities and offer the most up-to-date technology. The use of technology in our teaching extends across many subjects and we have always been proud to be an early adopter of innovative methods that enhance the learning experience.

At RGU we use an ‘applied’ teaching approach. As well as providing you with the necessary academic and theoretical understanding of your subjects, we try as far as possible to ensure there are practical elements too. These practical elements come in the form of industrial placements, internships, consultancy projects and voluntary opportunities. Whilst the vast majority of our undergraduate courses include a professional placement, almost all of our MSc courses will include the opportunity to do an academic or professional consultancy project in the form of a research project or dissertation. This is a great opportunity to develop your subject knowledge and industry related exposure.

Whether you have recently graduated, want professional accreditation, are looking to retrain or develop your career - whatever your reasons for postgraduate study - Robert Gordon University offers a wide range of Master’s courses with flexible study modes including online, part-time or full-time to fit around your needs.
