Path2Pro Abertay University

POSTED BY Webmaster March 28, 2022

We are extremely excited to welcome Abertay University as our next Path2Pro Partnership for our academy. Esports in Scotland is growing at a rapid rate, and Dundee is very much known for being at the forefront of this growth, with headlines in national news on a regular basis.

Abertay University is known for being an innovator within the gaming industry. The university launched the world’s first computer games degree in 1997 and has consistently been involved in gaming since then. It recently placed top 10 in the world for postgraduate video games education, and plans to offer formal education within esports, such as esports degrees in the future.

Basic info about Abertay:

  • Founded in 1994, with history going back to 1888
  • Ranked 92nd out of Scottish Universities. 
  • Abertay University was ranked UK University of the Year for Teaching Quality in the Sunday Times 2020.

“It is great to be able to partner with another fantastic university, especially one that has been known for its innovation within gaming for so many years. I am excited to see where this partnership can take us over the remainder of 2022.”

Curtis Bottomley, CGO & Academy Manager at Team Singularity

“The Esports society here at Abertay is very pleased to be partnering up with such a big organisation and name in Esports. We look forward to working with them and providing our players the opportunity to improve and have prospects in the industry.”
