An undergraduate degree is a first degree for those who do not already hold one.  You can choose from more than 220 undergraduate degree courses.

Four Year Honours

As with most Scottish universities, the majority of our undergraduate degrees traditionally take four years study to complete. This is different from those in the rest of the UK, and the additional year is designed to give you a broader education in the early years with a greater degree of flexibility, and in many
cases, the opportunity to try out new subjects.

In the final two years you will narrow your choice of subject and specialise in the key areas of interest to you.  It is also possible to study for a joint degree.

Three Year Honours 

If you are suitably qualified, you may be able to start your course at Level 2 (second year).  This is known as advanced entry.  

We also offer several discrete three year degree courses, including:

Five Year Degrees

For some degrees, you will need to study for a little longer. Courses which take five years include:

Academic Years

Our academic years run from September to May, with two teaching semesters. Exams for most undergraduate courses are in December and April/May.

In the UK, the term 'postgraduate' refers to Masters and PhD level courses. You may know these as 'graduate' level.

Masters Degrees

Our postgraduate Masters degrees are 12 months in duration. The advantage to the 12 month courses is that you will save both time and money, and begin your career sooner.

You will leave with a specialisation that can give you an edge in a particular field. Courses start in September, some also have January start dates.

PhDs

A PhD or Doctorate usually takes three years to complete, if studied full time. The British PhD does not have a substantial taught element, rather it relies on original research.

English support

Moving overseas to live and study in a country where you need to speak and write in a different language can be daunting. We offer a free 10 week English support course to increase your English skills and knowledge once you've started here. It's also a great way to make new friends.

Pre-sessional courses

Depending on the level of your English, you may be required to take one of our pre-sessional courses so that you can improve your English skills before beginning your degree.

Student Life in Dundee

Dundee itself is a dynamic and multicultural city which has recently been named as the UK’s first UNESCO City of Design. It is a friendly place you can settle into quickly, but has all the cultural and leisure activities you would expect from a much larger city. Theatres, art-house cinema, restaurants, galleries, bars, boutiques and craft shops are all within five minutes' walk from the University.  Most students choose to live on or near the campus, so you won't need a car. The city also has a vibrant nightlife, with a mix of mainstream and alternative clubs and live music venues. 

While at Dundee you can immerse yourself in Scottish culture (there's more to it than just tartan and shortbread!) and explore the scenic beauty of Scotland. Mountains, lochs and glens are all within easy reach, and the rest of the UK is also well served by public transport. If that's not enough, you'll only be a short flight away from mainland Europe too.

Student societies

Dundee University Students' Association (DUSA) has many student societies and sports clubs for you to choose from. Our International Student Society organises trips, tours and arranges social events such as Hogmanay (New Year), Burns Night, and St Andrew's Day. They work alongside our International Support Service to help make your time in Dundee memorable.

For undergraduate courses: if you have taken international school leaving qualifications such as A Levels or the International Baccalaureate (IB), the entry requirements are detailed on the individual undergraduate course pages.

For some of our postgraduate programmes there may be additional non-academic entrance requirements such as relevant work experience. These are detailed on the individual postgraduate course pages.

Thailand-based entry requirements

Completion of the Certificate of Secondary Education/Maw 6 with an overall GPA/Percentage of 3.0/70% can be considered for Level 1 entry (excluding Medicine & Dentistry). Where the course entry requirements page states that a subject should have been studied to Scottish Higher Level we require that subject in the Maw 6 with a minimum of 3.0/70%
 
Students with the Maw 6 who fall short of our English Language requirements may wish to consider our Foundation Programmes.

Direct entry to 2nd year is often possible for certain courses, based on A-Level or IB grades. Or if the student meets the Level 1 requirements and has undertaken further studies towards a relevant University level qualification at a recognised institution. Check the specific requirements on the course page.

Typically a 4-year degree with a GPA of 2.7 - 3.0 or above is required (and considered equivalent to a UK 2.1). Some courses may consider students with a score of 2.5 or above (considered equivalent to a UK 2.2).

A Masters Degree (Plan A, Research Based) with excellent grades in research projects. You must submit your degree transcripts.

For all our programmes you will also need to satisfy the University's English language requirements.
