Abertay offers lowest cost degree in the UK
A new study has found Abertay University offers the best value degree in the UK.
The wide-ranging research found that the total cost of studying at Abertay was just £15,880 per year.
That figure includes fees for tuition, halls, travel, socialising, books, food, clothes, the gym and laundry.
At £23,000 cheaper than the most expensive degree at Regent’s University in London, the study placed Abertay at the top of the league table for overall value in terms of cost.
Broken down on a monthly basis, the report from comparison site gocompare.com showed Abertay students can expect to pay as low a rate as £4 for a gym membership in the city, £86 on books and £38 on travel.
An Abertay University spokesperson said, ‘This study shows that Abertay continues to offer incredible value to prospective students.
‘Whether students are joining us from Scotland, the rest of the UK, Europe or elsewhere across the world, we consistently find their experience stacks up as one of the best value offers available.
‘The low cost of completing a degree, coupled with the cultural renaissance under way in Dundee adds up to a fantastic opportunity to live, work and study in one of the UK’s most vibrant cities.’
Abertay offers degrees in sport and exercise, psychology, mental health nursing and sociology.
It also offers courses in science, engineering and business management.
This year marks 20 years since Abertay became the first university in the world to offer a named degree in computer games design.
A programme of events to mark the milestone will be announced in the coming weeks.
