Thinking about studying at Dundee? Here some of the reasons why you should…

1. Quirky establishments

From a restaurant in a converted Victorian railway station overlooking the stunning River Tay to a quaint little pub named after George Orwell and hosts literary lock-ins. Dundee is filled with pubs, restaurants and clubs that’ll take your fancy.

2. UNESCO City of Design

In 2014, Dundee was named UK’s first UNESCO City of Design by the United Nations. The home of Beano, Grand Theft Auto and DJCAD, one of the best art schools in the UK, how can we not be!

3. V&A Museum of Design

Besides being the first design museum in Scotland, V&A Museum of Design will also be the only other V&A museum outside London. Opening the summer of 2018, you can be a part of the buzz that’s spreading all around the UK.

4. Alpacas

Yes, that’s right. This year, University of Dundee had these beautiful creatures on campus as a part of a stress reliever. How can you say no to this big fluffy alpaca?

5. Spotting whimsical statues around the city

Throughout the city you can find these statues that will brighten up your day. The Dundee penguins that are dressed up by the public, the cheeky monkey changing the signs on a city centre information sign and a tribute to the popular video game, Lemmings, are some statues to look out for.

6. DUSA The Union

Over 170 societies to join, cheap drinks and a games room with pool tables. The Dundee University Students’ Association (DUSA) is a great place to be a part of. Whether you want to grab a coffee after class, a great night out or want to join student media all you have to do is wander down to the union.

7. Broughty Ferry

Want a day out at the beach? A short bus journey to the suburbs of Dundee is all it will take. Whilst you are there you can nip into Jessie’s Kitchen for afternoon tea, have a go at crazy golf or go for dinner at the famous tapas bar, Sol y Sombra.

8. Lastly, look that the view…
