Our way of teaching

RU emphasises hands-on learning that prepares students for the challenges they will meet after graduation. This means working with other students completing actual, real world assignments and projects, often in collaboration with companies and institutions. This is one way in which students benefit from RU’s extensive connection to industry. Classes are kept small to encourage interactions between students and teachers.

Small equals good

The number of students at RU is approximately 3500 and all teaching takes place under one roof, creating a friendly sense of community. International students at RU have mentioned the friendly atmosphere as one of the University’s great advantages. Our campus is easily accessible from the centre of the city.
