The campus is a short walk to the Dundee city center where you will find excellent cultural, social, sporting, and shopping facilities. Boasting a population of some 180,000, Dundee is known as one of the four principal cities of Scotland. Dundee is also known for having the best climate of all of Scotland’s cities with the most sunshine and the lowest rainfall. The surrounding Tayside region holds many cultural and physical activities, including skiing, hiking in the highlands, and quick, cheap trips to Edinburgh.
The University College, Dundee, was founded in 1882 and, therefore, belongs to the same period as the older civic universities in England. It was originally prepared for students to receive external degrees from the University of London. In 1897, it became part of the neighboring University of St. Andrews. It was not until 1967 by the grant of a Royal Charter did the former University College, Dundee become the University of Dundee. The campus is now home to over 18,000 students, with approximately 15% of those students being international. The University of Dundee was just ranked number one in the UK for Student Experience in 2012.
The University campus overlooks the beautiful River Tay, and it is a pleasant mix of old and new buildings among picturesque lawns and gardens. Academic buildings are intertwined with recreational buildings and residence halls to form a friendly, self-contained pedestrian campus.
COURSES AND CREDITS
A list of the courses offered at Dundee is available on their International Student Course Catalogue page. Students applying to this program should plan to meet with the appropriate academic advisors to help determine course selection and to seek the necessary course approval(s).
All students will be registered by the Study Abroad Office as full-time students during their semester abroad, which is 12 hours for undergraduate students and 9 hours for graduate students. Undergraduate students must return with the equivalent of at least 12 hours of credit on their host university transcript (9 hours for graduate students). Students can take additional hours and are not limited to the minimum full-time requirement while abroad. All courses are graded on an ABCDF scale. There is no Pass/Fail.
Students who attend Dundee will live in on-campus accommodations. Students usually will have a single room with bathroom facilities attached to the room. All housing at Dundee is self-catered, where you will cook your own meals. More information on your housing options can be found on Dundee's accommodations page.
For the Dundee exchange, students are responsible for paying:
Current, full-time, UM tuition (including non-resident fees, if applicable)
UM Study Abroad fee (includes the cost for international health insurance)
Housing costs (details and payment are usually handled between the student and the host university)
Travel expenses, books and supplies, personal living costs, passport and visa fees (all the responsibility of the student)
Students who withdraw or become ineligible after the application deadline will be responsible for a withdrawal fee. For more details, please refer to the Study Abroad Policies & Procedures page.
Students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing to study abroad and must have a cumulative 2.5 GPA. Additional or more stringent requirements may apply depending on the program.
In general, financial aid will apply to UM study abroad programs. All students should review the study abroad information on the Financial Aid Office website. It is the student’s responsibility to meet with a financial aid advisor to discuss how aid packages apply to study abroad. Third party scholarships may also be available for specific programs, so students should discuss study abroad early and often with the Study Abroad Office and the Financial Aid Office.
For current tuition costs, the Office of the Bursar provides a tuition estimator.
