University of Abertay Dundee- by UniversityGuru

Abertay crest

University of Abertay Dundee.

You could never accuse Abertay of being stuck in the past. It offers world-leading courses in computer arts and computer games technology, has some of the best IT facilities in the UK and, in 2009, was accredited as the first UK centre of excellence for computer games education. In recent years, Abertay has built a new library and a student centre with cinema, coffee shop, nightclub and exhibition space. Dundee itself is a bustling, hard-working city, the fourth largest in Scotland and also, apparently, the warmest, thanks to its south-facing aspect. There are good local arts scenes, with a particularly good track record in music.
Fees
Fees for all undergraduate courses are £1,820 for new students in 2010-11. Scottish students have their fees paid for them.
Bursaries
Means-tested hardship fund, with an average payout of £1,000. Another similar fund for mature students. Other scholarships and bursaries are available.
Accommodation
Priority is given to first-year entrants from beyond reasonable commuting distance of Dundee, and the accommodation office can help to find private rooms. A new development of 500 rooms is currently under way, due for completion August 2010. Average rent is about £75 a week.
Facilities
A higher rate of PCs to students than almost any other university. There are new teaching facilities and the brand new student centre, too.
Transport
The campus is right in the city centre, so short walks will take you most places you want to be. Dundee is 90 minutes by train from Glasgow and an hour from Edinburgh. There's an airport with direct links to London.
