Excellent university

Overall
The campus is very modern, located beside a beautiful river and firest (amazing location and view), but still close to the city centre. 

The quality of teaching is very good, it is usually described as practical and vocational and not so academic. The university has an excellent employment hub that can help everyone find a placement, internship, graduate job etc. They offer all sorts of career support and advice. 

Strong rivalry with the University of Aberdeen :)

Personal recommendation
Strongly Recommended RGU is a modern university and it offers a lot of opportunities for students. The student must be ready for an intensive academic session especially for graduate studies and must spend some good time studyingand doing research in order to get the best from the modules. The town is small and the people are very friendly. However, it gets very cold.I strongly recommend the university for any serious minded (and fun-loving) person.

Final comments
Aberdeen is a cold city so students should come with warm clothings or be ready to buy some here. There is large student community here comprising students from Robert Gordon and Univ of Aberdeen. Lots of students from Africa and Asia. Cost of living could be a bit high when compared to other small cities in the UK but the learning experience would be worth it.
