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.

English language and Visa requirements

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.

Next step

We will only accept exchange applications from students whose home university has an exchange agreement with us and has formally nominated students to us for the forthcoming academic period. If you are not an exchange applicant please review our study abroad fee paying information.
