Abertay University

Abertay is a small, friendly and supportive university in the heart of Dundee. It excels in vocational teaching, and is an important player in the creative industries having been the first University to offer a “computer games” degree in 1997 and has since been regarded as a world-leading institution in video games design. 

Dundee, beautifully located on the banks of the River Tay, combines all the shopping, cultural and entertainment benefits of city living but with easy access to wide open spaces in the surrounding countryside, coupled with excellent road, rail and air links to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, London and other major centres across the UK. The city is ranked as cheapest Scottish university city by Accommodation For Students (AFS).
