African applicants may apply for the £5,000 University of Dundee Vice Chancellors Africa Scholarship.

About the University

Scotland’s Dundee is home to the public research institution known as the University of Dundee. With a gift from the illustrious Baxter family of textile manufacturers, it was established as a university institution in 1881. For the majority of its early years, the organization shared space in the St Andrews town center with United College and St Mary’s College, two constituent colleges of the University of St Andrews. In 1967, the University of Dundee received a royal charter granting it independent university status after undergoing tremendous growth while keeping some of its ancient traditions and organizational structure.

The Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee Law School, and Dundee Dental Hospital and School are among the various teaching and research facilities that are housed on the university’s main campus, which is in Dundee’s West End. The university also maintains buildings at Kirkcaldy, Fife, which houses a portion of its School of Nursing and health sciences, Ninewells Hospital, which has a clinical research center, and Perth Royal Infirmary. With an expenditure of £344.8 million, the institution’s annual income for 2021–2022 was £291.5 million, of which £71.8 million came from grants and contracts for research.


The University of St Andrews and the previous Dundee-based university college serve as the foundation for the University of Dundee. The demand for the formation of a university in Dundee throughout the 19th century greatly expanded due to the city’s expanding population, and many organizations, like the city’s University Club, were founded to support this cause. There was a substantial movement toward transferring the entire university to Dundee (which the royal commission noted was now a “large and increasing town”) or toward the construction of a college very much along the lines of the current United College. Finally, it was decided that expanding the sciences and professions at St. Andrews was more important than focusing on the arts.

According to the main international rankings as of 2018 (ARWU, QS, Times, and CWTS Leiden), Dundee is among the top 300 universities in the world, coming in at position 42 in the CWTS Leiden Ranking, equal to 272nd in the QS World University Rankings, and 201–300 in the Academic Ranking of World Universities. Dundee was ranked 16th globally and first in the UK in 2016 THE’s 150 Under 50 Rankings, are comprised of institutions with fewer than 50 years of age. The institution is globally ranked 44th for pharmacy and pharmacology, 93rd for biological sciences, top 100 for art and design, top 150 for nursing, and top 200 for medicine in the 2022 QS World Institution Rankings by Subject.
