Your Legacy to Dundee

By leaving a gift in your Will you will maintain an everlasting connection with Dundee and make a life changing different to future generations.

Gifts in Wills have enabled the University of Dundee to plan for the future and support every part of our University – from innovative research to scholarships for students from challenging backgrounds. 

You will help to fund scholarships for talented students so they can achieve their potential, regardless of their backgrounds. You will support pioneering research and innovations that make the world a better place. You will help attract the brightest minds and maintain our reputation for excellence.

A message from one of our legacy pledgers,

“The University was a very important part of my life and I wouldn’t be where I am today had it not been for that education. So my legacy gift is just my way of saying ‘thank you’.”

Professor Robert Freeman, Class of 1977, MB ChB Medicine
