Abertay University

City

Ucas code: A30

Abertay is at the heart of Dundee, combining 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. The campus itself is an eclectic mixture of everything from 16th-century castles to our outstanding award-winning library.

      The downside

      Not enough student University halls (and the ones they have aren't very central!) - I had to go for private student accommodation since Abertay didn't have room for me in 1st year!! The student union is so, so rubbish for nights out - it's never even open! Dundee Union is miles better and I feel ours should be just as good. So disappointing. There could be more societies and groups etc and more opportunities to join them (e.g. fairs etc).

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
