    Hey folks!

    I'm the new Abertay Students Association Vice President, and just a quick message to say that if anyone has any questions about Abertay let me know and I'll do my best to get you an answer!

    Not gonna know everything but should be answer most queries or at least find an answer for you!

    See you all in September!

    If Abertay gave me an offer on subjects that I am ACTUALLY doing then maybe yes. They gave me an offer of BBB including B IN DRAMA!!! I am not even doing drama and didnt put it on UCAS either, it is even more funny that I applied for a computing course. I have phoned 3 times and they have not done a thing. Anyway looks like Napier.

    If Dundee seems dull to you, then I don't know what would impress you. The night life here is fantastic, so much choice. The girls...are normal? Aka, if you're not getting it at home, you're not gonna get it at uni.

    I think I saw the whole town in a day. As for the night life is there really no more then 10 bars/clubs?

    No but is there a lot of girls? (ratio maybe?) when i went for the open day on the 6th of April I hardly saw any.

    If you want to drop me a line I'll try and get this looked into... To be honest, it sounds like a UCAS error - we don't do drama either! It might just be an office error that someone needs to correct. Feel free to private message me on here and I can get in touch.

    Dundee's nightlife isn't huge as it isn't a huge town, but there's something for everyone, and there's ALWAYS a student crowd out drinking, trust me! It's far from dull!! The girls are the same as girls everywhere, don't think location changes that! The ratio isn't any different from what is normal either! There is something like 25,000 students in a town of 140,000, which is one of the highest percentages in the UK.

    Thank you for an honest answer. I'm still going to firm it regardless of the nightlife.
    Do you know how competitive places for opal are?

    No worries - good to hear it! Say hello in Freshers Week!

    Truthfully, I'm not sure! Although I drove by this afternoon and they have a sign up advertising spaces so assuming there's still some left. The uni are still learning about things like that with Opal as this is only it's first year. It's in a great position though, right next to the uni and the main clubs and only 5mins from the city centre.

    Thats cool hope you enjoy it, I havent had my telephone interview yet, im close to firming one of the other offers i have because Abertay seem to be dragging their feet about stuff. Would rather they just said "No this course isnt for you" at least i could focus on my other offers.

    Im not taking it personally, I just have a few other other things to be sorting out and this wait is putting things on a truncated timetable. I understand they are busy but not busy enough to invite people up from London and give them an interview when I pretty much live round the corner in that scale. It does sound like im taking it personally but really Im not fussed either way, just want to get it out the road.

    Avoid Jamal Propertyworld and Grant Management - you'd be better living in the streets than in a Jamal flat...!!

    Lickely Proctor and Shepard are both good. By and large so are most of the private lets around town too.

    Ok thanks like I said we're going to go up and have a look around at the minute we've just been having a look on Rightmove and found some nice flats but not been looking at the names although I will start to now

    Rossclare Lettings are fairly reasonable - though they'll sting you at the start full admin fee, deposit and months rent in advance.
