Sport Development at Abertay is part of the Dundee Academy of Sport project that aims to motivate and inspire people through sport. We strongly believe in the value of using sport as a vehicle for learning throughout life and that the health and wellbeing benefits derived from leading an active lifestyle, make sport and physical activity a key part of university life. Therefore we want to support the Abertay community to develop sport across the campus and ensure that Abertay is as active as possible. As well as developing sporting opportunities for Abertay staff and students our work includes:
- Working with schools to use sport as a context for learning
- The delivery of sports lessons at Abertay and partner colleges
- Providing CPD opportunities for sports volunteers and professionals
- Providing exciting summer sports camp opportunities for young people
Sport can play a key part in supporting your studies at Abertay and helping you achieve Abertay Attributes, therefore make sure you join a sports team or take part in the physical activity opportunities organised by the Sports Development team to get the most out of your studies.
