Additional Costs

For the Higher Computing Science course, students must travel to Robert Gordon’s College Schoolhill campus in Aberdeen on one weekend to complete assignment or 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 staying with a pupil family from Robert Gordon’s College if sufficient notice is given.
