Abertay is right at the heart of Dundee, combining all the advantages of a close-knit campus with the buzz of city centre life. All of our buildings are within a quarter of a mile of each other, as are shops, bars, clubs, cinemas and theatres, and we’re just a few minutes’ walk from the bus and train stations.
Apart from getting on with the business of teaching, many of the staff are either actively involved in research or work with industry. All of our researchers are involved in teaching and developing courses – giving our students the chance to learn from world leaders every day.
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. Abertay also attracts a very high proportion of mature students.
There are endless opportunities for students and staff to socialise together, helping to develop excellent staff/student working relationships, and contributes to the feeling of community which characterises Abertay.
