Like the University, Dundee is international and multicultural. It is home to residents from many countries and ethnic groups.

“The best moments so far have been meeting friendly people. I think Dundee has the most friendly people I have met. People are so welcoming, so eager to help, and to give direction. Of course, it's daunting moving from your home country to a country that you've never been to, but I feel at home here.”

Grace Kayola from Zambia, MPH Public Health
