Robert Gordon University (RGU) will hold an Undergraduate Open Day next week for prospective students to learn more about the courses available to them.

The free event will take place on Wednesday, October 8, from 10am to 3pm at the university’s Garthdee campus.

Each of RGU’s three faculties will be present with representatives on hand from courses including computing, engineering and life sciences to business, surveying, law, social work, art and design and nursing.

Members of staff and current students will be available to discuss courses, talk about finance, careers, services and facilities and answer questions on how to apply.

Martyn Spence, Director of Marketing, Communication and Student Recruitment for RGU, said: “Our open days are your chance to experience the university’s stunning campus, learn more about our courses and find out why we are the top university for graduate employment in the UK.

“You’ll also be able to talk to staff about applications and student funding as well as finding out where students live around Aberdeen and how they’ve adapted to student life since beginning their studies.”

Those who attend the open day will also have the opportunity to talk to a course leader about study opportunities on degree level courses and find out about routes to RGU, including the university’s relationships with local colleges.

There will also be a chance to get information on the university’s scholarship and funding opportunities and receive one-to-one guidance on careers, placements, student finance and admissions.

Rickshaws will help ferry people around the campus and organisers have set up a photo booth, Instagram competition to encourage people to post pictures online using #RGUOpenDay with the possibility of winning £100 worth of Amazon vouchers.

There will also be a BBQ during the event.
