Entry Criteria

  • Higher Computing Science: Pass in National 5 Computing Science is required.
  • Higher Applications of Mathematics: Pass in National 5 Applications of Mathematics or in National 5 Mathematics is required.

Students who are not able to provide evidence of National 5 qualifications at the time of application may receive a conditional offer of acceptance until such evidence can be provided (e.g. when SQA examination results are released in early August).

Students enrolled in RGC Online must be willing and able to travel to Aberdeen. Travel may be required for course work and to sit the SQA examinations at the end of the course(s).

We are committed to ensuring that at least 1 in 5 students at RGC Online are on full scholarships. Scholarship applicants may be invited to interview as part of the selection process. Further information about our scholarship programme is available here.


The fee is £995 per course and students have the option of enrolling in either Higher Computer Science (starting August 2022), Higher Applications of Mathematics (starting August 2023) or both. Fee notes will be issued at the start of Session in August.

Included in course fees are optional modules in Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Game Design, Entrepreneurship and Cyber Security. Modules are available to all students whether enrolling in Higher Computer Science or Higher Applications of Mathematics.

Additional Costs

For the Higher Computing Science course, students must travel to Robert Gordon’s College Schoolhill campus in Aberdeen on two consecutive weekends to complete project work. Students who live a considerable distance from Aberdeen may need to consider the additional cost of overnight accommodation, though there may be the possibility of overnighting with a pupil family from Robert Gordon’s College if sufficient notice is given. 

Students will also need to travel to Robert Gordon’s College for their final exam.
