Bryan Middleton, Academy Performance Analyst at Derby County FC

While I was at Abertay I took the opportunity to do unpaid internships and work experience in the field. I did some work with Hibs, Forfar Farmington and Dundee Utd. It meant that when I graduated I already had the kind of work experience that a lot of teams ask for.

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 Sports student to learn their trade.
