Taxi transfer service for EU and International students

Updated on 8 January 2021

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

On this page

If you have not already booked or planned your return to, or arrival in, Dundee, then please follow the advice of the First Minister not to travel until such time as you have face-to-face teaching or an essential reason to be on campus.

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

This is only available to EU/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 EU or Overseas (international) fee status 
  • be a new (entrant) student, new to the UK (you may not claim expenses if you are a returning EU/international student)
  • travel from a Scottish airport (Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Prestwick)
  • be able to pay in advance and claim back afterwards

Book a taxi transfer

Once you have booked your flight and know your flight number and arrival time you should book a taxi online.

When booking, please make sure that you give the exact address and postcode of the accommodation you are going to (not the main University postcode) and also have this ready to confirm with your driver on arrival.
