I have chosen Robert Gordon University for its extensive experience in providing high quality education with a strong alumni and Scotland’s reputation for its quality in Higher education. Moreover Aberdeen is Europe's Oil and Gas Capital, so there are lots of Research and Development work going on in the city and also the prospects of petroleum engineers are very good to the Industry Presence. Oil and Gas Engineering definitely needs specialized talent. At the outset of Global warming and high stringent environmental terms across the world, field throws challenges around innovation in making the field greener. We need cutting edge innovation to deal with such challenges. I strongly believe that my time at university will aid me in understanding technology in a better & bigger perspective, develop relationship with students, professors, companies in this field, network for future prospects, and bring in innovation in the field and by joining the Robert Gordon University. University also provides lots of options in accomodation. All of them are made to make sure student gets would get everything to pursue their study. So I would attempt my next stage of journey towards excellence for their excellent program in Oil and Gas Engineering. I am sure that not only the destination but even the journey would be enlightening. University and Scottish Government also gives Scholarships to the students so that reduce the burden of their Fees cost.

Course review , 30/05/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

The course is ideal for those interested in social work and incorporates vital theory along with the skills required to apply knowledge within practice. Teaching throughout all years focuses on psychology and sociology and includes placements in second, third and fourth year in order to apply the knowledge gained from lectures and seminars.

There are a wide array of modules covered in the Accounting and Finance BA (Hons) course which leaves you in good stead for sitting professional qualifications later in your career. Most of the lecturers and tutors are very helpful. This course is mainly assessed through examinations, of which it is made very clear how they are marked and therefore how to get the best marks you possibly can. There is also some coursework in the form of reports or essays and some team work, but these make up only a small part of the course.

The teaching and quality of the course is the reason i decided to attend this university. The placement year is an option to get real life experience in the work force and stand you out on your c.v. My degree covers a vast amount of modules from economics to management and financial and other modules.

Course module review - Financial Accounting, 22/05/2016

Submitted by Anonymous on

The practice exam questions used as tutorial questions. The amount if books for this module were enough for atudents ans the option to read the e online book. The teaching of this course the lecturer used simpliest termology to begin within then when we were familar with the words processed to the accounting termonlogy.

You can ask questions in lectueres and tutorial support via email and a prcatice test in tutorial was voted for so students can not what to expect for the real test and the exam

Course module review - Concurrent Programming, 02/05/2016

Submitted by Anonymous on

This module was my most challenging, it taught us how to code not only with correct syntax, but efficiently for the machine and less time consuming. This was by letting programs run concurrently, side by side. It was very hard all the way through but all of the support from my lecturer helped a lot. It has made me realise that anything is possible when you put your mind to it.
