Robert Gordon University has been awarded for leading the way in producing innovative thinking students.
The university has become the first institution in Scotland to be given the Scottish Innovative Student Award from the Scottish institute from enterprise.
Working alongside universities it is hoped the award scheme will help design and deliver courses which equip students with a more forward thinking mindset.
Chris Moule, head of the entrepreneurship and innovation group at RGU, said: “Universities everywhere continue to respond to the ever changing demands of the learner alongside the needs of industry and the economy.
“RGU prides itself on its professionally focused and relevant curriculum which is responsive to the changing employment landscapes, evolving skills needs and the shifting educational environment.”
Following the university being granted self-accreditation powers by SIE, academic staff are now able to identify and use innovative teaching and skills practices in their own teaching.
Joining the scheme back in 2018, RGU has since gone on to provide students in a number of academic schools the opportunity to obtain the award at one of three levels.
So far 478 students at the university have attained a SISA award, with those who have attained the level three award being recognised at a virtual ceremony today for their efforts.
