Five Reasons to Choose Abertay

1. We’re Scotland’s top modern university

That’s according to the Guardian University Guide 2019. The guide ranks universities based on the stuff that’s really important to students like course satisfaction and graduate careers. With a student population of only 4000, we’re very proud to be Scotland’s #1 modern university!

2. Our degrees are ground breaking

We were the first university in the world to offer degrees in Computer Games Technology and Ethical Hacking. We are committed to keeping our learning innovative so you’re prepared for the 21st Century job market.

3. You’ll leave with a career – not just a degree

Did you know 95% of Abertay students are in work or further education within six months of graduating? We’re focused on the kind of industry-relevant learning that’s going to land you a job after you graduate, with many of our degrees offering built-in work placements.  

4. Dundee is a pretty cool place

With a population of less than 150,000, Dundee is a small city, but it’s a city that’s big on creativity! It’s home to Scotland’s first-ever design museum, the V&A Dundee, and in recent years, Dundee has become a hub for the creative industries with new games studios, art galleries and PechaKucha nights popping up all over the city. What does that mean for you as a student? It means you’ll get all the culture and excitement of a larger city, but with affordable accommodation and the friendliness of a smaller town!

5. You’re guaranteed a room in our student halls

All new full-time students are guaranteed a room in Abertay’s student accommodation. Living in halls gives you the comfort of knowing you're in a safe, well-maintained environment with the opportunity to meet lots of other new students! There are a range of rooms to suit your requirements and budget. Find out more about Abertay's student accommodation.
