I believe that my degree from Abertay was very important in starting my career in IT security. Not only was the degree essential, but the attention and focus that the course draws from organisations within the IT market allowed me to get in contact with the best options for me early on, before I even graduated.

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 an Ethical Hacking student to learn their trade.
