I’m a first year student at Abertay University. I’ve chosen Abertay as it’s the only specialist university offering the course of my choice, with a reputation that also meets the expectation of my parents. After a year I know I’ve made the right choice. I enjoy my course, find it interesting and challenging. The lecturers are friendly, supportive and passionate about the subject. On the personal side, I have made lots of new friends and have acquired a slight Scottish accent! I highly recommend Abertay as a great place to study for anybody considering education in the UK and Dundee is a brilliant place to live.

I chose the UK because I wanted to gain a world-class education. The testimonies of past students revealed that this university offered inspired teaching and excellent facilities, as well as having the state of the art equipment, tools and techniques required for my area of study. The lecturers gave me inspiration and the support I needed in order to develop my skills. The system encourages a sense of adventure and the freedom to be creative while exploring real-life applications. The academic support staff have helped me to maintain high standards during my course. It gave me an opportunity to join an international community, with the possibility of discovering the country’s unique culture, cities and countryside. It has meant I could live in Dundee, explore the UK and travel to places I had only previously seen on pictures.
