Liam Wong, Graphic Design Director, Ubisoft Montreal

From graduating at Abertay to becoming Ubisoft’s youngest director in the space of two and a half years, everything I know about working in teams, leadership, planning, presenting my work and giving direction was picked up from my experience at Abertay.

Why Dundee?

Dundee is going through something of a cultural rebirth.

With the £80m V&A Museum set to open its doors later this year, Dundee was named by The Wall Street Journal as one of the world’s hottest destinations.

It’s an extremely friendly city, which is small enough to get from A to B by foot, but large enough to have great shopping and vibrant nightlife.

Dundee is a contemporary city full of energy and vision—it has one of the highest student population ratios in the UKand it’s the perfect environment for a Computer Games student to learn their trade.
