Class of 2020 – we got there!

It might not be how they imagined spending the final few weeks at university but they got there! Congratulations to all of our students for adapting to these exceptional circumstances and finishing their coursework from home.

We would especially like to acknowledge our fantastic final year students who have had a very different end to their course than any of us would have imagined. We are sad not to have had our usual celebration at the end of term but we were so happy to catch up remotely on Zoom and hear about how they’ve all been getting on. We heard about new exercise regimes, spending time at home with family and pets, discovering local surroundings, digital quizzes, short courses and lots more!

Wishing all of our students and soon to be graduates all the best for the summer ahead. We look forward to hearing and sharing what they’ve been up to.

It’s a challenging time for graduates in an uncertain job market but we have no doubt that we’ll be hearing about some of their successes soon.

Mood boards

mood board feeoh

Attention all fashion management students; you know all those mood boards that we ask you to create whilst you’re studying on the course? Well here’s one of our graduates putting these skills into practice in her role in fashion branding at House of Fraser.

Fiona-Marie graduated in 2017 with a BA (Hons) in Fashion Management at RGU and has been working in her role at House of Fraser for the past few months. When we heard the news we were delighted to see one of our graduates had secured this exciting position, in what was a very competitive application and interview process!

Fiona-Marie’s role is to create and deliver brand advertising, customer communication plans and campaigns at House of Fraser and this includes television, out of home and social media advertising. Thanks for sharing Fiona-Maria and we wish you the very best of luck in your career!

It was lovely to welcome this familiar face back to RGU this morning!

Julie Brander graduated in our first BA (Hons) Fashion Management cohort and, since then, has enjoyed an exciting and successful career in the Scottish Communications sector as an Account Manager with Weber Shandwick. Julie has very kindly come along to talk to a number of our student cohorts about her career and some of the opportunities that exist for our hard working and creative students!

Thank you for a very inspiring talk Julie!

Congratulations to the Class of 2016


Today we watched our fabulous fourth years graduate and we’d like to wish them all the very best for the future! It’s always a bit sad to say goodbye to our students when they reach the end of the course but we look forward to seeing what exciting opportunities lie ahead. Keep in touch everyone and enjoy your celebrations!
