Head of Division Dr Dayna Galloway would like to share this message with you…

Congratulations to all our Division of Games and Arts students, as you graduate from Abertay.

I’m disappointed that I won’t see you crossing the stage at the Caird Hall or to have the opportunity to meet with you and those close to you in the city square. However it is important that you all take the time to reflect upon and celebrate your phenomenal achievement in the face of challenging circumstances.

I look forward to seeing what the future holds, and to follow your careers – so please keep in touch to let me know where your adventure takes you next.

I hope you enjoy your virtual graduation and I look forward to joining you for the traditional ceremony when we are able to hold one.
