Dundee - where we are
Dundee is at the heart of Scotland’s road and rail network and puts spectacular scenery, skiing, championship golf, mountain climbing, and sailing within easy reach.
The major cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow are a short trip away. Scotland’s four main international airports all operate both national airlines such as British Airways, and low cost airlines. This makes it easy to get to all the major centres of the UK and Europe.
|Edinburgh airport||1 hour 15 minutes|
|Glasgow airport||1 hour 30 minutes|
|Manchester airport||5 hours|
|Birmingham||5 hours 20 minutes|

Living and working on campus lets you get right into student life and experience the very best that the campus and city have to offer. We have 250 self-contained flats on campus, or just across the road, so you couldn’t be any closer to classes, the library, and the students’ union.
All bedrooms are single occupancy with en-suite high-spec shower room. Our superfast wifi won Best University Broadband 2017.
Each flat has a well-equipped kitchen and there’s a laundry on site. Staying in Dundee’s accommodation means there are no hidden costs as electricity, water, internet, maintenance and personal property insurance are included in the price.

All our courses are delivered in English. If English is not your first language, you will need to demonstrate that you meet our English Language requirements. This page also lists acceptable High School English Qualifications by country, which may mean you do not have to take an additional English language test.
As an international student coming to study in the UK for a full academic year or a single semester you will have visa requirements.
Please check on GOV.UK website to determine what your visa requirements will be.
If you are a single semester Erasmus applicant, do not require a visa (after checking previous link) and do not have an acceptable High School English qualification, we are willing to accept an English language test certificate from your university to support your English language proficiency.
Please ask your Erasmus+ Co-ordinator to contact us for further information.
