Our students who start first year next week will be the first to undertake our new interdisciplinary electives studying such diverse and contemporary challenges as “Defence against the dark arts”, Games for Change”, “Smart Cities” and “How big is infinity?” Getting to grips with how we know what know.” Also, our students who graduate next July will be the first cohort at Abertay to have their degree classification calculated on their performance during third and fourth year and to leave with a Grade Point Average (GPA) and a traditional honours classification. 642 more words
