About the University

Abertay University is a public university with an established reputation for working well across traditional research boundaries, as well as within new and emerging disciplines and sectors. 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.

Abertay is committed to high-quality research that delivers a real impact on society. From environmental research into sustainable businesses and food production to using computer games as creative and critical tools to understand the behaviours and structures that drive and influence individuals in the societies in which they exist, our researchers are solving complex real-world problems to fuel innovation-led growth and sustainable development.

An ambitious, forward-thinking institution, it offers degree programs to prepare students for careers in the modern world.  With around 4500 students representing 60+ nationalities, we’re one of Scotland’s smallest university communities, it focuses on STEM subjects, business and social sciences, but it is perhaps best known for its world-class reputation in videogames education and cybersecurity.

The University places a strong focus on professional development. The games programs are designed to harness creativity through practical project work. ‘Thinking outside the textbook’ allows our students to choose their path, allowing them to apply knowledge to real-world environments. Videogames students benefit hugely from studio simulation and team-based development, ensuring confidence and a high level of ability upon graduation.

Abertay University has been awarded the “UK University of the Year for Teaching Quality” (Times 2021) and is a “UK top 10 institution for student satisfaction” (Guardian 2021 & NSS 2020).
