About the Scholarship Provider:

The University of Dundee has been a public institution of higher learning since its founding in 1881. A cornerstone of St. Andrews University throughout its formative years. A long time later, in 1967, after rapid expansion, it was given university status. However, it has kept most of its established political structure and historical traditions intact. It has been repeatedly voted Scotland’s best university by students in Times Higher Education’s annual student experience poll. One of the top 40 universities in the UK, and one of the top 300 in the world.

Dundee, Scotland is home to its flagship campus. Dundee is the location of several highly regarded educational facilities, including Dundee Law School, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, and Dundee Dental Hospital and School. The university’s medical school and clinical research center are based in Ninewells Hospital, while the Perth Royal Infirmary serves as the university’s teaching hospital. The University of Dundee’s ten schools represent a wide range of academic interests and each has its own dedicated research center. This university has about 18000 students from 145 different countries and over 3000 faculty and staff. There is a high probability of academic achievement at this institution at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. In the most recent edition of the International Student Barometer, a survey taken by students all over the world to determine their degree of satisfaction with their educational experiences, the university was ranked well among the finest in the United Kingdom.


Further, the school’s prestige is built on the shoulders of its affluent alumni. Sir James Black, a former chancellor who also studied medicine, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Ronald Coase, who taught at the university from 1932 to 1934 in the School of Economics and Commerce, was the first living person to win the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences in 1991. Notable figures from a wide range of fields are also among the university’s alumni association’s ranks. Dundee and the surrounding area are located in the middle of Scotland’s eastern coast, and they frequently rank well in surveys assessing graduate employment because of the university’s focus on vocational and professional degrees. The University of Dundee has a lot going for it in terms of student satisfaction: several programs provide internship and job shadowing opportunities, and every student has their own homepage dedicated to their own academic growth.

Representatives from the University of Dundee will meet arriving international students at Edinburgh Airport, handing them welcome packets with information to ease their transition to life in Scotland. Events are held all through the year specifically for overseas students, and the Overseas Advice Service is always available to help with visa and other difficulties. Dundee, Scotland’s fourth-largest city, is situated on the River Tay in the country’s eastern section, surrounded by hills and countryside. Tuition and living costs here are 14% below the national average, making it one of the most affordable places to get an education in the United Kingdom. You can visit the new V&A Dundee museum in the sunniest city in Scotland, which also happens to be the first UNESCO City of Design in the UK.


Despite the fact that Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Aberdeen airports all offer international flights, only Dundee airport provides direct service to London City airport from Heathrow and Gatwick. The University of Dundee improves people’s lives all across the world by creating, sharing, and applying new knowledge. The University’s reputation for world-class research and its extensive selection of advanced degree programs attract students and faculty from around 145 countries. When it comes to cutting-edge innovations like keyhole surgery and flat-screen TVs, this university is at the forefront, giving its students access to the most of what modern technology has to offer in the classroom. Dundee has produced many notable alumni, including Turner Prize winners, world leaders in politics and industry, and activists for social justice. Overseas students can take advantage of free English language courses that cover areas including academic writing, seminar skills, listening, and note-taking throughout the pre-sessional period.
