Aberdeen and Robert Gordon may merge

June 21, 2002

The governors of Robert Gordon University were this week debating a confidential report that could lead to merger with neighbouring Aberdeen University by 2004. Aberdeen's court will consider the report next week.

The institutions have been exploring greater collaboration, backed by £160,000 from the Scottish Higher Education Funding Council.

Glasgow and Strathclyde universities, and Dundee and St Andrews, have made formal links but have ruled out merger.
