The University of Dundee aims to transform lives, working locally and globally through the creation, sharing and application of knowledge.

We were given a 5 Star rating by QS Quacquarelli Symonds, the international higher education specialists (QS 2022). 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 research is highly rated by the most recent Research Excellence Framework (2022), which assesses the quality and impact of research submitted by universities across the UK. Furthermore, 84% of the University’s research was found to be ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.

Dundee’s collaborative approach to teaching and research is reflected in our close-knit community campus, which is located in the heart of Dundee, with the best the city has to offer close by.

We pride ourselves in offering a wide range of subjects to study and world class teaching facilities. The University’s ten academic schools cover a variety of subject areas including life sciences, creative arts, business, accountancy, computing, law, engineering, medicine, and dentistry.

Our compact city campus has an ideal location in Dundee, with the city's best shops, bars, and restaurants within walking distance. There are also museums, art galleries, theatres, and beautiful green spaces close by.

On-campus itself, you can find top-class sports and gym facilities, as well as Dundee University Students’ Association (DUSA), a central hub for our students, which offers a nightclub, bars, cafés, and a convenience store.
