Abertay University, in Dundee, is the UK University of the Year for Teaching Quality (The Times & Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021) and a UK top 10 institution for both student satisfaction and teaching (Guardian University Guide 2021). Having launched the world’s first degrees in Computer Games, we’ve been ranked the #1 in Europe 6 years running (Princeton Review). In fact, an Abertay student created Grand Theft Auto and the game originated in the city, a hub for Scotland’s booming games industry. Abertay graduates have gone on to work for leading computer games companies – including Sony, Microsoft, Ubisoft, Blizzard Entertainment, Electronic Arts, Rockstar North and 4J Studios.
Abertay also launched the world’s first Ethical Hacking degrees and is at the forefront of cybersecurity. Away from technology subjects, in our School of Applied Sciences, we offer programmes in Sports Sciences, Forensic Sciences, Food Science and Technology, Biomedical Science, Civil Engineering, Psychology, Counselling, and Mental Health Nursing. If Social Sciences are more your thing, we offer Sociology, Criminology and Social Science, as well as flexible programmes around Accounting, Finance, Business Management, Digital Marketing, Law, Events Management, People Management, and Business Analytics.
As a small university, Abertay students find a more personal experience, with its size making it easier to make friends and spend time with lecturers. Abertay and the city of Dundee also consistently appear in the UK’s top 10 lists for affordability. The city has sprung to international attention recently with the opening of the first V&A museum outside of London and making ‘best destination' lists for 2018 by Bloomberg Businessweek and Lonely Planet.
