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.

The cap for prepayment meter customers will increase by £87 per year, affecting around 4 million households.
