University of Dundee


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.
