Societies


Co-Presidents: Reginald Ankrah & Oluwademilade Ogunsesan

We are a group through which you can network, meet other research students, get support from fellow researchers and join in social activities. Our community of research students are based in Aberdeen and round the world, studying at RGU in different disciplines.

We provide a number of informal activities aimed at developing personal research skills and/or socialising. A 3-day (cost-free) residential training event 'Research Student Gathering' takes place every May at The Burn, Edzell, and is our most popular and exciting yearly event. All current RGU research students are given the opportunity to attend.

We are one of the largest societies in the University with our community of research students based in Aberdeen and around the world, studying at RGU in different disciplines. In recognition for our work, RSA has won Society of the Year 2014 and Best Improved Academc Society Achievement Awards 2013 and 2016. Membership of the RSA is a nominal fee of £10 per year (or £25 for 3 years!) and includes the coveted RSA mug! (Honorary membership is £15 per year).
