    Ive already sent away my UCAS and have applied for robert gordon(aberdeen) as my back up, but Ive also applied for heriot-watt(edinburgh) and am not sure if picking robert gordon was a good idea due to its far up location, although it is ranked higher in general than napier on league tables they both offer good employability. Im in a real pickle mainly due to edinburgh being a more 'student' city than aberdeen

    They're pretty much the same in reputation, although I believe it's RGU that does the best for employment prospects (don't quote me on that, though.)

    If you don't want to go to Aberdeen, then have a different insurance.

    I don't know what you're applying for but if it's business/management/finance/accountancy or engineering, then Robert Gordon by a country mile.

    If it's computer science or something to do with IT then, well, neither - there are much better choices within Scotland for that.

    No, they're not. You only have to look at the types of companies that turn up to a Robert Gordon University careers fair to see the difference.
