A warm welcome to our International Guide - that has been especially written with you in mind. The guide should contain all the information you feel is important before embarking on the adventure of your life! If you can't find the answer to your question please email our International Student Adviser or use our Ask a Question page.
Studying abroad is one of the most exciting things you can do. You will not only learn academically, but also culturally and socially.
All of these new experiences will transfer themselves into great life skills - no matter what subject you choose to study. International students are given a really warm reception not only at the University but also in Dundee as a city, which welcomes and celebrates diverse cultures.
We have no doubt that moving from school, further education, home and family or the world of work to university will be both an exciting and daunting experience, involving considerable changes for you. We are aware that the lead-up to coming to Scotland and your first few days in the University may feel a little bewildering, but don't worry as our orientation programme will help settle any homesickness you have.
Don't forget your family and friends will be just as excited, but will also worry about you travelling so far from home, so make sure you give them a copy of your travel plans and the address of your accommodation.

This is your opportunity to ask me any questions you may have on what it's like to live in Dundee, Scotland and what life is like at Abertay. I will also be able to tell you about the excellent support available to you during your studies and any pre-arrival information that you require. My colleague Amanda Shaw will also be on hand to talk to you about our English Language support including Pre-sessional and In-sessional English support classes.
