University of Dundee


Student Life

While at Dundee you can immerse yourself in Scottish culture (there's more to it than just tartan and shortbread!) and explore the scenic beauty of Scotland. Mountains, lochs and glens are all within easy reach, with the rest of the UK well served by public transport. If that's not enough, you'll only be a short flight away from mainland Europe too.
