Being based at the Schoolhill campus, which will not be in use as soon as the Life Sciences, Computing, Engineering and Pharmacy schools move to Garthdee in 2013/2014, I can only comment on the Union. It offers everything you would expect from a Union, but could be larger in size. We are fortunate to have one, in comparison with AU. RGU:SPORT is brilliantly equipped, and membership is reasonable. If you are based on the Northern side of the city, where many of the Halls are, it can be a nightmare to get to unless you study in Garthdee.×

the course i am studying has recently changed and it has not been changed for the better in my opinion. we have had many essays to do, two of which were to be completed during our first placement. For our very first essays, we were obviously given quite a bit of help but our next two essay were not explained well at all and when i asked for help it wasn't very good advice i was given. it is a very busy schedule with many classes but they are very helpful and informative. the clinical skills facilities which include dummies and mock hospital and community settings are very useful in trying to help you understand what it may be like on palcement.×

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.
