The University of Dundee aims to transform lives, working locally and globally through the creation, sharing and application of knowledge.
The University has an excellent reputation and Dundee is a great place to be a student. We are University of the Year for Student Experience (The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020) and one of the UK’s top 30 universities (The Guardian University Guide 2020).
We 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. Dundee's collaborative approach to teaching and research is reflected in our close-knit community campus, making Dundee an excellent place to live as well as work and study. We currently have over 16,500 students, with 5,000 studying at postgraduate level, from over 140 countries
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 gold rated in the Teaching Excellence Framework 2017.
Research at Dundee has been ranked among the very best in the UK in the latest Research Excellence Framework (2014). Over 30% of our funding comes from research and this translates into world-changing solutions for health, the environment and the economy. Our strong performance in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) has made us top in Scotland for research in these subjects.
We want to welcome the best and most creative students to Dundee but we understand that studying can be quite a financial commitment. That's why we offer a £5,000 Global Excellence Scholarship to help you along the way. To be eligible for the Global Excellence Scholarship, you must formally apply to study at the University of Dundee and receive a conditional or unconditional offer. Instructions on how to apply for the scholarship will follow your academic offer, however as the awarding criteria is based on qualifications, you may be automatically eligible.
We are one of the top UK universities for graduate employment - 96.4% of our graduates were in work or further study six months after graduation (HESA Destination of UK Leavers Survey, 2018). Our careers service is made up of trained, dedicated staff who work very closely with employers and can help you to find a job in the field of your choice.
Dundee has a high student population and is both a very friendly and cost-effective place to live. Set in beautiful countryside on the east coast of Scotland, it is a welcoming university city with plenty to see and do. Our compact city campus, market-leading accommodation and excellent support mean that our student experience is sector leading. For 3 years, we have ranked Top 10 in the UK for student experience (National Student Survey 2018).
Dundee is also an inspiring place to be, combining a rich history with modern transformation; the exciting £1billion Waterfront Project, focused around the V&A Museum of Design, is changing the face of the city centre. In 2014, Dundee was named UK's first UNESCO City of Design.
