As a university, we are immensely proud of our academic achievements but there is a great deal more to us. We are a modern new university, one with a long history and have quickly become one of Scotland's leading universities, highly ranked for our academic performance and with a talented group of students and academics who make us the success we are.
We place teaching and student support at the heart of the University and provide a network of Support services to help you with all aspects of your life whilst you're at Abertay. In fact, there are many good reasons to choose Abertay.
Abertay University has some of the most innovative and well-designed buildings in the UK and our library and Student Centre have set the standard for universities across the UK. The facilities available across our campus are excellent and we pride ourselves that we are ranked very highly in the UK for our investment in IT. But it's not all work and no play: Dundee has some outstanding student entertainment and sport plays an important part in university life, as our sporting achievements demonstrate.
Being a student at Abertay is a rewarding experience. Our halls of residence are of the highest quality and a place in university accommodation is given to all first-year students who register by the deadline. We have some fantastic new accommodation that has been purpose built and is just five minutes' walk from the University. With a variety of flat sizes and bedroom styles, this residence will be a popular option for all students.
We welcome students coming from college. Many of our students join us through this route and go on to achieve great success in their studies and careers. You can expect to see many international students in the city too. Over 17% of our students are from countries outside of Europe, including India, China, Malaysia, Thailand and Pakistan.
Dundee is an outstanding place to live and study and offers an affordable lifestyle. Not only are we in a beautiful part of the world, but we are also Scotland's sunniest city. We hope that you will join us at a university which, founded on a long history, is committed to providing an education for the future.
