A message from Nigel Seaton, Principal and Vice-Chancellor

The safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and visitors is the University’s number one priority as we approach the start of the new academic year.

Our plans for returning after the summer are well advanced and we will continue to work hard behind the scenes on a range of changes to our buildings and ways of working, as we get ready to welcome you back to Dundee.

At Abertay, we pride ourselves on being a small, personal and welcoming University and that ethos will continue to be central to our approach into the coming academic year.

We will be in touch with regular updates as we move towards September. Please do make use of these pages, which will be updated with fresh information as it becomes available. I look forward to welcoming you to the University in September.
