Interested in studying or working abroad?

12 October 2015

Abertay SA and the Abertay International Office are hosting a week of activities to promote opportunities to study and work in Europe, the US and elsewhere.

Come along to our events to learn about the opportunities available, meet with Abertay students who have studied and worked abroad and international students studying at Abertay. Or just join us to have fun and sample food and drink from our partner countries. If you're looking for adventure, a new experience or a break from your regular routine, this is the place to start!
