University of Dundee – one of the World’s Top 150 Universities

By StudyLink

Ranked 140th in the world and 47th in Europe, the origins of the University of Dundee go back to 1881, with the founding of University College, Dundee. The College then had a 70-year relationship with the University of St Andrews before it became an independent institution in 1967. It is now a firmly established university, with a world-class reputation in teaching and research .
The University of Dundee has over 18,000 students, supported by over 3000 staff. 16% of the University’s students are international, coming from over 80 countries worldwide. We offer undergraduate and postgraduate degrees within four colleges: the College of Arts and Social Sciences; the College of Art, Science and Engineering; the College of Life Sciences; and the College of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing. For those looking for postgraduate study, strong research-led teaching makes the University of Dundee an excellent choice, with most taught postgraduate (Masters) courses lasting one year.
We pride ourselves on providing outstanding support for international students and, according to the latest International Student Barometer (2009); the University of Dundee was ranked 2nd in the UK and 1st in Scotland for international student support. Dundee students also enjoy the benefits of studying at a university consistently placed in the UK top 10 for graduate employment.
The campus boasts state-of-the-art teaching facilities, library, accommodation, sports and social areas. This helps to create a sense of community and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. In order to make your stay in Dundee even more comfortable, the University has recently invested £39 million in new, modern student accommodation found at the heart of the campus .
Dundee’s dedicated careers service offers support in areas such as job-seeking strategies, applications and interviews. The University also has an innovative suite of programmes designed to increase employability such as the Scottish Internship Graduate Certificate which helps international students obtain a six month internship.
Dundee is a campus university situated in the heart of a thriving city. The city of Dundee is very student-orientated, with excellent cultural, social, sporting and shopping amenities as well as a low cost of living. The city enjoys a spectacular scenic location on the estuary of the River Tay on the east coast of Scotland, with the Highlands to the north and St Andrews and Edinburgh to the south.
