About the Scholarship:
The University of Dundee is a public research university that was founded in 1881. During its early years, the college was a constituent body of the University of St Andrews.

It is the university that has continuously been rated best in Scotland in Times Higher Education’s annual student experience poll. It has also been placed among the world’s top 300 universities and among the top 40 universities in the United Kingdom in national university rankings. The main campus of the institution is in Dundee, Scotland.
