Abertay 25

Congratulations! You’ve found Abertay University Archive’s fantastic Abertay 25 Education Packs. Perhaps you’re here because you want to deliver an exciting research-based project with your group or class, or perhaps you’re interested in learning some research basics yourself. Either way, we hope you enjoy these packs as much as we have enjoyed making them.

Before you start your groups on their Enquiry Learning journey, we highly recommend looking through the Introduction and Welcome Packs found here.

You can contact us at any point during your research journey – our Archivist, Ruaraidh, would love to hear from you! Contact us on archives@abertay.ac.uk
