In Scotland, we value our many historical and cultural connections with Canada and Canadians. Abertay has nurtured these links by warmly welcoming Canadian students through its doors for a number of years.
Our Canadian Engagement Lead regularly attends exhibitions and visits schools across Canada to support students and counsellors through the application process. To see where she'll be, visit our Meet Us In North America page.
Benefits of a Scottish Degree:
Originally from the Niagara Region, I came to Dundee in 2016, although I’ve lived in Scotland off and on for close to 10 years. I love Scottish culture, history and nature but I really miss the Canadian backyard barbecues on a super-hot summer day, butter tarts and snow days.
I very much look forward to helping you come to Abertay. I'm here for you every step of the way so don't hesitate to get in touch.
"It was instrumental. From graduating at Abertay to becoming Ubisoft’s youngest director in the space of two and a half years, everything I knew about working in teams, leadership, planning, presenting my work and giving direction was picked up from my experience at Abertay."
