The University of Dundee appears at the top end of many UK and World rankings, including being in the world’s top 20 and number one in Scotland in the 2014 International Student Barometer. The University is also ranked in the top 1% of world universities for 2014/15 in both the QS World University Rankings and the Times Higher Education World Rankings.
The city of Dundee is one of the few locations in the UK which combines the best of both worlds – city facilities on a friendly community scale and easy access to some of the most stunning countryside in Scotland. Set on the spectacular Tay Estuary, Dundee is a city in a landscape of wild beaches, rolling golf courses, quaint coastal villages and beyond them Scotland’s famous mountains and glens – providing a range of lifestyle choices unbeaten by other Scottish cities. In 2014, the city of Dundee was the first in the UK to be awarded UNESCO City of Design status, a designation that only 12 cities in the world had previously received.”
