            2005-2007, BSc First Class

            Studying at Abertay was just brilliant. A small University with a big heart and a personal touch. The lecturers were very supportive, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The support I received especially during my dissertation and final year project was inspirational. I can highly recommend studying here.

          • Testimony
            2000-2002, BA (Hons)

            I moved here from another university at the end of my 2nd year and really believe it was the best decision I ever made. The lecturers deliver really interesting classes, which offer a combination of theoretical knowledge and practical projects. The university offers great facilities and Dundee is a fun city to study in!

          • Testimony
            1994-1998, Accountancy

            The lecturers and mentors at Abertay teach and assist you to a high standard. If you put in a big effort they will match it, especially when completing dissertation work in your honours degree. I joined Abertay with average A levels to come out 4 years later with a First Class honours degree in Accountancy. The new library in 1997 was inspiring.
