Location

Abertay is located in the city of Dundee, Scotland. Dundee’s cultural renaissance is progressing hand-in-hand with its economic and social regeneration. With a population of just over 143,000, the City of Discovery has punched well above its weight in reinventing itself as a city renowned for its energy, expertise and entrepreneurialism. Its reputation for excellence in fields as diverse as the life sciences and creative industries is spreading nationally and internationally, and the city is moving into a new phase of development.
