About University of Dundee:

The University of Dundee aims to transform lives, working locally and globally through the creation, sharing and application of knowledge. Dundee’s vision is to become Scotland’s leading University, celebrated internationally for the quality of our graduates and our academic excellence. We continue to build on our success by investing in excellent facilities, pushing the boundaries of research and equipping our staff and students with the means to create real-world impact and transform lives. Dundee’s collaborative approach to teaching and research is reflected in the close-knit community we have created on campus, making Dundee an excellent place to live as well as work/study. Dundee has one of the highest student ratios of any British city and is both very student-friendly and a very cost-effective place to live. Set in beautiful countryside on the east coast of Scotland, it is a friendly and welcoming university city with plenty to see and do. Dundee is also a stimulating place to be, combining a rich history with modern transformation; the exciting £1billion Waterfront Project, focused around the new V&A Museum of Design, Dundee, is changing the face of the city centre and Dundee recently became the UK’s only UNESCO City of Design. The University’s nine academic schools cover a variety of subject areas at both undergraduate and postgraduate level including life sciences, creative arts, business, accountancy, computing, law, engineering, medicine, and dentistry. Our teaching is some of the highest quality you will find, and is regularly recognised by all the top university league tables.
