Do you want to study in the UK? Good news! We are here to inform you about the Sports International Scholarships application that is currently ongoing at Robert Gordon University. In this article, we will be discussing the scholarship, its worth, its eligibility, and the application process.
The Sports International Scholarships is offered for an Undergraduate degree. Robert Gordon University, regularly called RGU, is a public university in the city of Aberdeen, Scotland. It became a university in 1992 and was initiated from an educational institution created in the 18th century by Robert Gordon, a prosperous Aberdeen merchant, and various institutions which provided adult education and technical education in the 19th and early 20th centuries. It is one of two universities in the city (the other is the University of Aberdeen). RGU is a campus university and its single campus in Aberdeen is at Garthdee, in the southwest of the city.
The Garthdee campus is the university’s core campus, where all academic departments are situated and teaching and research take place.
The Garthdee campus is located southwest of the city. For much of its history, it was a Greenfield site, with parts used as the gardens and estate of the Victorian manor of Garthdee House, farmland, and open meadows. The first university buildings were in use from the 1950s. The Garthdee campus has seen major investment in recent years, with numerous new buildings built since the late 1990s which comprise a “University Street”, part of Norman Foster’s design concept for the modern campus.
In the subject league tables from The Guardian, it was first in Scotland for four subjects in 2017 (Health Professions; Journalism; Architecture; and Pharmacy), while safeguarding three subjects in the UK top 10.
The Sunday Times presented RGU with the title of Best Modern University in the UK for 2012 in its University Guide 2012. The title had previously been won by Oxford Brookes University for each of the preceding ten years. RGU obtained the 2012 award partially due to ratings of the quality of teaching and research, but also due to its employment record which was judged the best of any UK university. RGU was also named as Best Modern University in the UK in The Times Good University Guide 2013.
The first Student Representative Council was organized at Robert Gordon’s Technical College in 1931, with activities such as sports clubs and societies following in the 1940s. A Student Union building opened in 1952 at Rub is law Terrace in the city’s West End. In 1969, the shop and bakery next to Gray’s School of Art (now the Administration Building) on Schoolhill came on the market and were bought by Robert Gordon’s Institute of Technology. The Student Union building opened there in 1974 and remained until its closure in July 2014 as the campus moved to Garthdee. RGU: Union is now situated on Union Way inside the RGU SPORT building.
