Many courses are offered on a part time or flexible learning basis. This includes distance learning and courses available completely online.
The university offers a number of unique study opportunities, including Scotland’s only veterinary nursing degree. Also, the Advanced Security and Digital Forensics Masters programme is one of only a very small number to be accredited by the UK Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ).
The university is one of the largest HE institutions in Scotland with around 19,500 students from over 140 countries. It has over 9,000 international students as well as almost 3,000 students studying its programmes overseas in Hong Kong.
According to HESA, 95.1% of students went into employment or further study within six months after graduating in 2014/15.
