About the University of Dundee:

The University of Dundee is a public research university based in Dundee, Scotland. Established in 1881 with a generous donation from the renowned Baxter family of textile manufacturers, it initially operated as a university institution. During its early years, the university, along with United College and St. Mary’s College, all situated in St. Andrews, served as constituent colleges of the University of St. Andrews. However, it achieved autonomous university status in 1967 through a royal charter, preserving some of its historical traditions and governance structure.

The university’s main campus, located in Dundee’s West End, houses various academic and research facilities, including the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, the Dundee Law School, and the Dundee Dental Hospital and School. In addition to the main campus, the university has facilities in Kirkcaldy, Fife (housing part of the School of Nursing and health sciences), Ninewells Hospital (with a clinical research center), and Perth Royal Infirmary. In the 2021–2022 fiscal year, the university generated an annual income of £291.5 million, with £71.8 million coming from research grants and contracts and total expenditures amounting to £344.8 million.

The University of Dundee has its roots in the University of St. Andrews and an older university institution in Dundee. The desire for a university in Dundee grew significantly during the 19th century, driven by the city’s expanding population. Various organizations, such as the University Club, were established to support this cause. The debate revolved around either establishing a college similar to the existing United College or relocating the entire university to Dundee (which was described as a “large and increasing town” by a royal commission). Ultimately, the decision was made to expand science and professional programs in St. Andrews rather than arts programs.

As of 2018, the University of Dundee is ranked among the top 300 universities worldwide in major international rankings (ARWU, QS, Times, and CWTS Leiden). It holds the 42nd position in the CWTS Leiden Ranking, shares the 272nd spot in the QS World University Rankings, and ranks between 201 and 300 in the Academic Ranking of World Universities.
