Coming to Abertay in 2020

Coming to Abertay in 2020 

We are looking forward to welcoming our new and returning students, University colleagues and visitors to our campus in the heart of Dundee this September. While you can expect the same warm and friendly Abertay welcome, we are working on a number of changes to ensure all those coming to campus are kept safe. 

Remember that Term 1 teaching begins on 21 September with Orientation and Freshers’ Week activity from 14 September. There’s plenty of information in the pages below on what to expect this coming academic year and you can also browse our FAQs which will be regularly updated over the summer.

A message from Nigel Seaton, Principal and Vice-Chancellor

The safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and visitors is the University’s number one priority as we approach the start of the new academic year.

Our plans for returning after the summer are well advanced and we will continue to work hard behind the scenes on a range of changes to our buildings and ways of working, as we get ready to welcome you back to Dundee.

At Abertay, we pride ourselves on being a small, personal and welcoming University and that ethos will continue to be central to our approach into the coming academic year.

We will be in touch with regular updates as we move towards September. Please do make use of these pages, which will be updated with fresh information as it becomes available. I look forward to welcoming you to the University in September.
