Abertay University

Abertay University, formerly the University of Abertay Dundee, is one of two public universities in the city of Dundee, Scotland. In 1872, Sir David Baxter, 1st Baronet of Kilmaron, left a bequest for the establishment of a mechanics’ institute in Dundee and the Dundee Institute of Technology was formed in 1888. As early as 1902 it was recognised by the Scottish Education Department as an educational hub, and was one of the first to be designated a central institution, akin to an ‘industrial university’. Abertay gained University status in 1994.

Abertay launched the world’s first computer games degree in 1997 and in 2017 held a programme of events celebrating 20 Years of Games. Abertay was also the first to offer a degree in Ethical Hacking, starting in 2006.

Abertay University is situated in the centre of Dundee. The campus buildings include the historic Old College buildings of Dundee Business School, the Bernard King Library, scenes of crime teaching facilities, specialist Ethical Hacking labs designed for research into computer hacking and misuse, and modern computer games labs in the UK Centre for Excellence in Computer Games Education.

The Bernard King Library in Bell Street opened to learners in February 1998 and was formally opened by Queen Elizabeth II on 30 June 1998. The library was voted best new building in Scotland in the 1998 Scottish Design Awards competition. The building has a stone rectangular ‘spine’ and a curved glass front mimicking an open book. The Library houses an English Language learning centre, a specialist Law library, and an EU funded IT suite. The library was designed with the digital age very much in mind, and although the traditional books still feature, the emphasis was and is very much on providing access to digital information through online subscriptions.

The Student Centre building in Bell Street opened in 2005 providing a home to the Students’ Association as well as a trading centre with an art gallery (Hannah Maclure Centre), cinema, student bars, food, and retail trading outlets.

 

Why Abertay University?

At Abertay, we’re proud of our students and graduates, and we believe there’s no better place to study if you’re looking for a degree that helps you become an exceptional candidate in an increasingly competitive job market.

Abertay is much more than your average university: We are small and we like it that way! It gives us room to get to know you as a student, and provide you with the kind of personal and academic support you won’t find in a larger University. Small class sizes so you’re on first name terms with your lecturers.

 

 

Abertay University Accreditation:

  • Abertay University videogame courses have become the first in Scotland to receive accreditation from games industry trade body TIGA.
  • They also recognised Abertay’s position in the Princeton Review, which ranks the university’s games courses as the best in Europe.
