Welcome to Abertay

While you can expect the same warm and friendly Abertay welcome in September 2020, things will be a bit different.

The new term will be a form of blended learning with large group learning such as lectures delivered online and small group activity such as tutorials delivered face-to-face on campus in line with social distancing guidance in place at the time.

We're working hard behind the scenes on a range of changes to our buildings and operating systems for September and will contact you by email with regular updates in addition to posting information on these pages.

Key Dates

End August/Start September: You will receive a Student Guide to Term 1 giving you all the essential info you need to know ahead of coming to Abertay. You will also be placed in a Microsoft Teams group so you can get to know your Programme Leader and people on your course and in your year.

7-11 September: Take a preparatory course for new students to get off to the best possible start. Abertay College Transition programme if you’re joining us from college. University Preparation programme if you're joining us from school or if you’ve been out of education for a year or longer. Both are free and will be delivered online.

14 -20 September: Freshers’ Week. You will have a Freshers' Week interactive guide for your degree programme that will summarise all activities and how to access them. It is hosted on the intranet so you will have to sign in. Included will be degree programme welcome sessions with academics, induction sessions essential for how life as an Abertay student works and social events.
