I've studied at RGU for four years, and the FOHSC has heavily featured in the majority of those studies - I hope this review might enlighten future students.
TRAVELLING - if you are going to study in the FOHSC building make sure you live within easy access. Living at garthdee itself as a student can be boring as there us no nightlife but at least it means you don't have to suffer public transport! If you do insist on living more central, I suggest you don't go for the Holburn st area - I know mNy a student who has not been able to get to uni because the buses are all full by that stage! Go for king st or somewhere around Union terrace.
FACILITIES - the FOHSC has an excellent pretend ward for training nurses and other allied health professions in. There's even a fake a fake patient who has a heart attack and another fake patient who gives birth! With regards to IT, it needs more computers - at exam time you can guarantee you won't get a PC and those in the computer lab are noisy - I wish it was policed!
CANTEEN - it's got a lot better this year, it has the traditional burger and chips option, but it also has a choice of sandwiches as well as a healthy option. The queues can be long though depending on when you go which can be frustrating if you have a lecture to go to.
SUMMARY - the FOHSC is unusual in that you enter on the fourth floor of a six storey building - it took me ages to get my head around this! The facilities for learning, aside from computers are excellent though and if you are wanting to study for a degree in a healthcare related profession this uni is a good choice.
