Robert Gordon University
University can be an exciting and rewarding experience for students. However, for some, it can also bring changes that might be difficult and stressful at times. The Student Counselling & Wellbeing Services Wellbeing Adviser and Counsellors can offer a safe space to talk about issues that may be concerning you. Students can have up to 4 counselling sessions in each academic year. Asking for help when feeling stressed or worried is a positive step to take to maintain your emotional health and wellbeing.
The Inclusion Centre can support you with alternative exam arrangements and other practical support for your studies, including support for applying for Disabled Students Allowance and a mentoring service.
We can support you whether you are on campus, on placement, working full-time, a distance learner, or have family commitments. Both services offer face-to-face, telephone, or virtual appointments. Virtual and telephone evening appointments are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
Moreover, RGU:Union works to enhance the student experience at our university by providing advice and representation, opportunities for students to get involved in over 70 student-led clubs and societies as well as volunteering, organising events and activities to foster connections and involvement, and supporting students academically and personally.
