Did anyone or anything at Abertay have a lasting impact on you?

The lecturers. They always made themselves available to help out with any issues we had. They were always motivating us to do better and this really helped boost my confidence.

Work hard and don’t to be scared to ask questions no matter how silly you might think they are – and, of course, have fun now and again!
