Considering your options?

So you've shortlisted your choices for further study, and now you are considering your options?

See what some of our current students and graduates have to say about their time here and find out why choosing Dundee will be the best decision you'll ever make:

Staff at the institution are very encouraging and this makes for a good learning environment Core teaching, research and assignment submission were all achievable electronically, and academic and IT support were easily accessible Dundee's a great place. Small enough to walk around and large enough to grasp in all the amenities and modernity of an urban metropolis The opportunity to study abroad as part of the ERASMUS exchange programme, enabled me to broaden my horizons and experience new cultures The library resources and staff are outstanding The standards of teaching are phenomenal, with staff being expert in their knowledge and enthusiastic when lecturing So much choice, so much variety…there's no chance of getting bored I always wanted to study in a multi-cultural environment and it can't get any better than this Many opportunities for students to get involved …a student run radio station, DUSA TV and a multi-media marketing consultancy all led by student volunteers The student support system … is outstanding. I came here a nervous, shy teenager and am leaving a fully-fledged, confident adult There's nothing like waking up to the stillness of the Tay in the early morning Dundee Union has everything and organises wacky and wonderful themed nights! It's also very, very cheap for drink and food The LLB is exceptionally well taught.  I enjoy my course far more than friends who are studying the same subject elsewhere The Clinical Skills Centre is excellent, and the simulated patients/actors are first rate Dundee has and will always be a university for the students. It always encourages you to progress both academically and socially The University works hard to make sure that the course content is current and up to date My course widened my horizons in terms of career opportunities My course tutors have always been people whose interest and knowledge in their subject has been both inspiring and engaging I feel like I'm now prepared to enter the real world The vast array of online journals … makes it so easy for parents of small children to study Dundee gives its students a fantastic level of control of their student experience … you start to take control of your life! The transferable skills that you obtain along with your degree, and any extra curricular activities you get involved in, really impress potential employers My course allowed me to build my own individualized timetable according to my own personal preferences Settling in couldn't have been easier, everyone was so friendly, and my flatmates were to become lifelong friends Working on a summer research project in one of the labs led on to my honours project – a great opportunity Some universities can be quite faceless in their education; with Dundee, it's personal The combination of practical and theoretical work has given me a head start in my professional development When out on placement you get to put all your skills to use, and know that you have improved a patient's stay in hospital We are encouraged to learn but more importantly to think
