Teaching is really good and is related to how you will practice radiography in the 'real' world. They have good facilitiles i.e. the x-ray suite to practice in and the clinical skills lab is good as it is like a real hospital environment to prepare you for placement. The lecturers are very helpful and offer extra help if needed.×

Cost of transport in Aberdeen is expensive and the main residences are away from the campus. Also finding accommodation in the city is hard. There are take away chains on campus plus the university meals, which are reasonable and surprisingly good. The campus bookshop is VERY expensive and I would have liked to know that you don't need the latest edition of every course book, however they offer a "buy back" option too. Part time work isn't too hard to find if you're flexible with where you work×

The bus service is terrible. Due to RGU (Garthdee Campus) located far away, the bus costs are extremely high. The First Bus has used this to their advantages by raising prices. There are no other way to get to garthdee except by bus; especially as all the halls are located in the city centre.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
