Dundee University is a public research university in Dundee, Scotland. It’s situated in the town of St Andrews itself. After significant expansion, the University of Dundee became an autonomous university in 1967, though maintaining much of its ancient history and governance structure.
It ranks among the top 300 universities in the world and national university rankings among the top 40 in the United Kingdom.
Dundee is the fourth-largest town in Scotland and sits on the east coast of the Tay River, surrounded by hills and farmland. It has some of the lowest cost of living for students in the UK, 14 per cent lower than the UK average. It’s Scotland’s sunniest city, too. Dundee Airport provides direct routes to London City Airport for those wishing to travel either from Heathrow or Gatwick, while other Scottish airports, such as Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, also provide international destinations.

- Dundee is the fourth largest city in Scotland and includes Broughty Ferry, which was once referred to as the richest square mile in Europe. The jute barons of Dundee saw Broughty Ferry as the perfect place to build mansions, and so the area was known as wealthy, more so than any other region in the United Kingdom, or indeed Europe as a whole.
