Numbers of international students at the University have grown rapidly over the last 7 years, particularly from India and Nigeria and in the fields of business and technology. Numbers of international students at RGU have grown rapidly over the last 7 years, particularly from India and Nigeria, and particularly in the fields of business and technology. Given the increasingly competitive market for international students, we are now seeking to consolidate our numbers and diversify our intake further especially across subject area – and we do not underestimate the challenges that we face in doing so. Our business is also evolving so you will equally need to help us develop international partnerships and support the international agenda of our three new research institutes.

DIRECTORATE OF MARKETING, COMMUNICATION AND STUDENT RECRUITMENT

THE DIRECTORATE ENCOMPASSES THE INTERNATIONAL OFFICE, MARKETING OFFICE, COMMUNIATIONS OFFICE AND THE UNIVERSITY’S ADMISSIONS OFFICE. TOGETHER, WE HAVE A KEY ROLE TO PLAY IN HELPING THE UNIVERSITY MEET ITS AMBITIOUS STUDENT RECRUITMENT TARGETS.

All four departments are situated in the Schoolhill Building on our City Centre Campus. The City Centre also hosts a number of other departments as well as the Schools of Pharmacy & Life Sciences, Computing and Engineering. However our plans are that all academic and support functions will be centred on the Garthdee Campus within the next decade, and an ambitious development plan is in place to help us achieve this. The Marketing Office devise and deliver campaigns for undergraduate and postgraduate recruitment in the UK and Eire and for those seeking distance learning options. They have a particular role to play in core publications such as the main prospectus and in raising awareness of our brand, but are also increasingly working on smaller campaigns with academic colleagues to promote specific courses to niche groups.

THE PROFESSIONAL UNIVERSITY ‘PROFESSIONAL’ IS OUR WATCHWORD FOR THE WAY WE TREAT ALL OUR STAKEHOLDERS, INCLUDING AND ESPECIALLY OUR STUDENTS. IT GUIDES THE WAY WE WORK TOGETHER, AND DEFINES WHAT WE EXPECT FROM EACH OTHER.

OUR HERITAGE The name Robert Gordon has been synonymous with education in Aberdeen since 1750 when the original college was founded from his bequest. With the addition of Gray’s School of Art in 1885, the School of Pharmacy in 1898 and the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture in 1957, the original college has evolved over the years into a substantial university – a leading institution of learning still able to draw upon this rich heritage.

THE UNIVERSITY TODAY

“The partnership we have with Robert Gordon University not only helps to verify the high quality of learning we provide for our people, but it also leads to a formal qualification at degree level, which both Shell and our staff see as valuable.”

The University generates an annual group income of around £92 million through corporate programmes, consultancy and other business engagement, research income and fee paying or funded students. We currently employ approximately 1600 members of staff and deliver courses to around 15,500 students. 22% of these students are engaged

the EU. Expanding our cultural and commercial links with overseas organisations has helped to create many exciting opportunities for our staff and students to work abroad. Our commitment to internationalisation is evident in the establishment of an International College at the University through Navitas. Following the launch of the College in September 2011, we expect to significantly increase our recruitment of international undergraduate students at a time when our recruitment of international postgraduate students is coming under greater pressure.

16


COMMERCIAL LINKS Our strong links with industry have delivered corporate alliances, CPD programmes and consultancy both in the UK and overseas. The deployment of blended learning through the Moodle Virtual Learning Environment is further expanding our capability for working with corporate partners and SMEs. Enterprising research is undertaken by groups throughout the University and the results contribute to technology transfer and ‘spin outs’. We have been especially successful in SMART awards. Additionally, our commercial organisation, Univation Ltd, continues to develop strong commercial relationships with major energy organisations worldwide, winning significant corporate contracts for delivery in the UK and overseas.

ABERDEEN CITY AND SHIRE

20


ROBERT GORDON UNIVERSITY IS LOCATED IN ABERDEEN WHICH IS SCOTLAND’S THIRD LARGEST CITY WITH A POPULATION IN EXCESS OF 200,000 AND 400,000 INCLUDING THE WIDER ABERDEEN HINTERLAND. THE MERCER 2010 ‘QUALITY OF LIVING’ SURVEY RECENTLY RATED ABERDEEN AS ONE OF THE TOP WORLD CITIES AND SECOND ONLY TO LONDON IN THE UK. The city is known internationally as the undisputed European capital of the energy industry. However, it also has many other sides to its character. Not least because it is located on the edge of the world renowned Scottish Highlands and the spectacular Cairngorms - a magnet for walkers, climbers and skiers from across the UK. Aberdeen is undeniably a wealthy city; it has one of the highest per capita incomes of any city after London in the UK. Such prosperity brings many benefits. The city boasts first-class facilities. Shopping and leisure opportunities are constantly expanding. Schooling at all levels is well catered for – with secondary schooling, in particular, recognised for its quality in both the public and private sectors. The hotel sector continues to expand its full range of provision as you would expect of an energy capital. Aberdeen also offers a fine array of cultural attractions. There is an eclectic mix of bars, cafés and restaurants and a host of modern entertainments including cinemas, theatres, museums, galleries and concert halls. And, throughout the year, Aberdeen also plays host to several entertaining and stimulating festivals including the Aberdeen Alternative Festival and the International Youth Festival. Aberdeen International Airport has direct connections with the major ‘hub’ airports of Paris, Amsterdam and Oslo as well as London (Gatwick, Heathrow and Luton) and Dublin. It also has established connections with a wide range of other major UK cities.
