Hear from our students

Dundee was not a university that first came up on my radar. However, when I first set foot on campus I was captivated by the building and regeneration work at the time, which clearly pointed to a forward thinking university that wanted to leave a legacy and invest in its students. It was clear that we weren't pawns to be filled with knowledge, but people with whom they wanted to affect and transform the course of their lives for their good, by providing the best education and student experience. Dundee is an overlooked gem of a city to live and study in. It is an ideal place to thrive while you live and study here.
