“The hard work and commitment of our staff has created an outstanding learning environment and a genuine feeling of community on the Abertay campus.
“It’s great to see that recognised in this league table.”

Abertay’s Mental Health Nursing course is joint first in nursing in Scotland for graduate prospects, with 100% of alumni in professional or graduate level jobs six months after graduation.
The university’s Food Science programme is listed as one of the top 15 throughout the whole of the UK.
It’s been a year of celebration for Abertay, with the university’s videogames courses ranked best in Europe for the fifth year in a row by the annual Princeton Review, and in the top 20 globally.
