That the Parliament congratulates Robert Gordon University on being ranked as the top modern university in Scotland for graduate prospects in The Guardian Good University Guide; understands that Robert Gordon University’s has consistently had high rankings for employability across many other league tables in recent years; commends the university on its widening access programmes, which, it believes, help to make higher education attainable to people in priority groups, such as those from socio-economically deprived backgrounds and care-experienced young people; understands that over 90% of university leavers in Scotland in 2019-20 went on to employment or further education, and wishes Robert Gordon University and its students continued success.
