About Abertay University
Abertay is a modern, friendly university in the heart of Dundee, Scotland, with a strong focus on teaching and preparing our graduates for the world of work, combined with excellence in research and knowledge exchange. With roots going back to 1888, Abertay has always responded to the needs of industry, supplying a pipeline of graduate talent to work, lead and innovate across a wide range of sectors. Having forged a reputation as one of the UK's leading tech universities, we are best known for our expertise in video games education and our degrees in this field have been ranked number one in Europe for the last seven consecutive years.
From Mental Health Nursing to Civil Engineering, or Business Analytics to Ethical Hacking, our three academic schools offer programmes that prepare our students for employment and, in most cases, offer real-world work experience alongside their studies. We pride ourselves on offering an inclusive, friendly and welcoming environment for our students and staff alongside first-rate teaching and excellent student experience.
The friendly and welcoming environment at Abertay is created by our students, who represent a great diversity of backgrounds and cultures. Over 60 nationalities are represented on campus, and our courses attract everyone from local school leavers to overseas research students. We welcome a high proportion of mature students and a key priority for the University is working to widen access to higher education for students from disadvantaged backgrounds, an area in which we lead the way in Scotland.
