Dundee is among the best universities in the UK for graduate employment and we lead the way in widening access to ensure higher education is open to everyone, regardless of their social or economic background. We are ranked #1 in Scotland for graduate prospects (Complete University Guide 2022).
We also offer an award-winning, internationally renowned student experience, as demonstrated by the fact we recorded one of the highest satisfaction rates in the Autumn 2019 International Student Barometer (ISB). Our partnership with Dundee University Students’ Association is key to this. DUSA is consistently ranked among the best student unions in the UK and plays host to over 180 societies.
We are ranked 4th in Scotland and 23rd in the United Kingdom in The Times & Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021. We are also the #1 university in the UK for climate action (Times Higher Education University Impact Rankings).
In the Guardian University Guide 2022 subject rankings, we are in the top 10 for Dentistry (5th), Forensic Science & Archaeology (6th), Medicine (6th), Education (7th), Physics (8th) and Design & Crafts (10th).
We were the top ranked university in the UK for Biological Sciences in the Research Excellence Framework 2014 and were named as the world’s most influential pharmaceuticals research institution in a major global survey by Clarivate Analytics that placed us ahead of the likes of Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of California Berkeley.
Our campus is ideally located with relaxing green spaces and a community feel, and just a 5-minute walk from the city centre and the train station and Dundee is one of the best places in the United Kingdom to live, work and study. The Wall Street Journal and Lonely Planet made us one of their top ten`places to visit in 2018,’ and GQ called us `Scotland’s coolest city’. Dundee, Scotland’s most student-friendly city with around 1 in 7 of the population in higher or further education, offers all that’s best about urban life, while also being friendly, compact and easy to navigate.
