Applicant direct application

On this page

The following instructions explain how to use our Direct Application System

First of all you will create a temporary user account using your personal details and email address. This temporary user account is only required to complete, save and return to, and then submit your application. You do not need to complete your application in one session. You can return to it later by logging back in using your login details.

Please ensure you use the correct email address when you create your account as this can't be changed until after you have submitted your application to us.

Search for the course you want to apply for (see video below)

Type in the name of the course you want to apply for.

Click or tap the Apply button

If there is more than one apply button, you should click the one next to the date you wish to start your course.

Complete your application

You will need to complete the following information as part of your application:

  • Your home address and contact information, including your personal email address and date of birth
  • Details of your qualifications, grades and dates (this includes any qualifications you have not yet completed)
  • Details of your English language qualifications, such as IELTS (for non-English speakers)

You don’t need to include the following information with your application now, but you can include it if you have it. Otherwise we will ask you to provide the details later:

  • Upload a copy of your qualifications, English language qualifications
  • For international applicants only - details of your passport and upload a copy of your current passport

If you are working with a recruitment agent, remember to add in their details in the relevant section so that we can link them to your application from the start. This means the emails we send to you will also be copied to your agent’s registered branch email address for information.

Submit your application

You are also able to apply for more than one course at the University of Dundee at the same time. You can log back in to your temporary user account before you submit your application and make a new application for an additional course, e.g. for a pre-sessional English course.

What happens next?

After you have completed and submitted the application, we will send you a confirmation email. We will also send you details of your University of Dundee applicant IT account by email.

Your applicant IT account is different from the account you created to submit your application. Your applicant account will give you access to My Applications on eVision, which is used for tracking your application, uploading documents we ask for, applying for a scholarship, accommodation and so on.
