You can apply to most of our full time, taught postgraduate courses, using the online system, UKPASS. For most of the others courses, there is a paper form which you can download. Check the individual course page to find out which application system to use.
For Postgraduate Research Degrees, visit our Postgraduate Research website.
To apply for one of our courses via UKPASS, follow the link from the individual course page. You will be taken through a registration process, and then you can create your application online. You do not have to complete the application form all at once, you can save your details and return to it at a later date.
Please follow the procedures below for uploading documents (UKPASS is case and space sensitive):
Once you have completed your application, you submit it online, and we will receive it.
After we receive your application, we check the documents you have sent, and will send you an acknowledgement by email - we aim to do this within one week. Please note that if you do not forward the relevant documents with your UKPASS application this will significantly delay your application.
For more information on how we process your application, see Your Application Journey below.

The University of Dundee welcomes applications from disabled students, and applicants for any of our programmes are encouraged to contact our Disability Services department at the earliest opportunity for confidential advice and information on our provision for disabled students. Further details of this provision is available on Disability Services’ website
Our aim is to ensure that all students have an equal opportunity to attain their full potential in a learning environment which is as inclusive as possible. To help us to achieve this, it is important that we identify any specific adjustments the University needs to make to meet your individual disability-related needs in addition to those we have already made in anticipation of disabled students’ needs generally.
If you have made a formal application to the University and declared a disability, further details on the services we can provide will be sent to you in your application acknowledgement email. Your application will be processed for selection according to our academic and non-academic entry criteria in the same way as all other applications. Should we require you to undertake an interview or other additional selection process, as required of all applicants for some of the programmes we offer, you will be able to inform us of any additional support you may need for this. If you are applying for a programme with specific Professional Fitness to Practice or skills requirements that may be affected by your disability, we may contact you to discuss your individual disability-related needs and to arrange a needs assessment with Disability Services. A disability panel, including representatives from Disability Services, the senior academic admissions tutor and departmental disability support officer, will then consider your individual needs and identify any adjustments that may be required to enable you to participate in the programme. If reasonable adjustments cannot be made, we will discuss this with you and any impact this may have on your application and the University’s offer. Appeals can be made through the University’s Appeals process
If you have already received an offer of a place, and you have not informed us of your disability and/or any additional support you may require, we encourage you to contact Disability Services as soon as possible so we can identify any specific adjustments you may need to meet your individual disability-related needs before your course starts. You do not have to disclose your disability to the University but we ask you to carefully consider the advantages of doing so. When you disclose a disability, the University will do all that it can to identify and arrange appropriate support to meet your individual needs. A delay in you raising your disability with us to help us identify your needs may mean we may not be able to put support in place as quickly as we would like to. If you are applying for a programme with specific Professional Fitness to Practice or skills requirements that may be affected by your disability, we may contact you to discuss your support needs and, where appropriate, to arrange a needs assessment. A disability panel, including representatives from Disability Services, the senior academic admissions tutor and departmental disability support officer will then consider your individual needs and identify any adjustments that may be required to enable you to participate in the programme . If reasonable adjustments cannot be made, we will discuss this with you and any impact this may have on your application and the University’s offer. Appeals can be made through the University’s Appeals process
If you would like to visit the University to discuss our services and facilities for disabled students in more detail, we would be delighted to arrange this. Please contact us on (01382) 385402 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
