Living in Ardmuir Trinity Court

Situated close to King Street, Ardmuir Trinity Court is the closest RGU accommodation site to beautiful Old Aberdeen. It is a prime location for students with lots to do within a short walking distance, while also being peaceful without the noise distractions of living in the city centre. Speaking from personal experience of living in both Ardmuir Trinity Court and other RGU accommodation, I have been able to appreciate and enjoy the many advantages of living here. (more…)

My Journey To Aberdeen

My journey to Aberdeen started in 2015/2016. I went through the application process alongside visa interviews and was well on my way to the master’s program I had been accepted for.

Third Year Digital Fashion Show Student Experience

One of the attractions of the Fashion Management course is the opportunities it provides, particularly in third year. With the choice to do a full year, 12 weeks or a 6 week placement, I chose to do the latter as it meant I could come back for the remainder of second term to work on the Digital Fashion Show.

Holi Festival

As an Indian student, I was keen to go along to the traditional Holi celebrations that took place in Aberdeen. Holi is a Hindu festival, known as the Festival of Colors, it falls on the last full moon day of the Hindu month of Phalgun: around late March or April. This festival is meant to symbolize the triumph of good over evil. It’s not India’s biggest festival, but it’s the most colorful — and probably the one most beloved across the globe. (more…)
