With around 4500 students representing 60+ nationalities, Abertay is one of Scotland’s smallest university communities. The tight-knit nature of the university has seen us ranked top 20 in the UK for student experience (Times/Sunday Times 2020).
Abertay was famously the first university in the world to offer a degree in Ethical Hacking. Ethical Hacking courses are still offered along with Game Design, Business, Food Science, Psychology, Law, Civil Engineering and many others.
Our campus is located right in the heart of the city of Dundee, meaning you’ll be a short walk from everything you’d expect from a modern city. Dundee is on Scotland’s beautiful east coast with excellent connections to Edinburgh, St Andrews, the Highlands, Aberdeen and Glasgow.
