Updated on 3 November 2021

Due to coronavirus travel restrictions, we are offering entrant International students up to £75 towards a taxi from Scottish airports or Dundee bus or rail stations

To help entrant International students the University will refund up to £75 for a taxi transfer to accommodation.

This is only available to international entrant students this year because of the coronavirus pandemic and the need to ensure safe travel to Dundee. Students who have been in Dundee studying before will be more familiar with transport links and travel options.

Who can use this offer?

To qualify for this offer you need to:

  • have International fee status 
  • be a new (entrant) student, new to the UK (you may not claim expenses if you are a returning International student)
  • travel from a Scottish airport (Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Prestwick)
  • be able to pay in advance and claim back afterwards
