Entry from College

Entry from College

Over a third of Abertay students arrive from college. Our agreements with colleges mean you can start many Abertay degrees at Year 2 with a relevant HNC or Year 3 with a relevant HND.

We want you to make the most of your time at Abertay. Everyone needs a helping hand at some point, so we have a range of support services to help you make the transition from college.

If you need help with anything, be it personal, financial, academic, or anything in between, our specialist support staff are there for you.

Our Student Academic Support (SAS) team is located in Student Services, and can help with all aspects of studying, from getting your referencing right to managing your time more effectively.

Our Abertay College Transition (ACT) Programme has been designed with student input to help you anticipate the differences between HN and degree study, understand the academic culture at Abertay, find out about the opportunities and activities on offer, and meet some of the people who can support and advise you during your studies.

Students approach us with a wealth of skills, experience and qualifications, so we've also compiled details of alternative entry routes.

Entry Routes

To find out where your Access, HNC or HND course could take you at Abertay, please review our entry routes below.

SWAP

We've listed below the SWAP profile grades (SCQF Level 6) and additional requirements needed to be considered for entry to an Abertay degree programme. Consult the SWAP website to find out more about programmes offered at a college near you!
