To achieve the University’s vision to transform lives locally and globally, we need to travel. Our goal to become Scotland’s leading university is ambitious, but not out of reach – we have been named Scottish University of the Year for the second consecutive year, and we’re gaining traction in major league tables, in particular The Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

To ensure Dundee is globally renowned for the quality of our teaching and the impact of our research, then we need to “take Dundee to the world, and bring the world to Dundee”.

By travelling worldwide to attend international recruitment fairs, conferences and events we increase our visibility and what we have to offer to a wider student market, as well as developing our growing reputation, which in turn helps to attract new staff from across the globe, and to form international partnerships with other institutions and organisations.

This new ‘global’ segment on the One Dundee blog is dedicated to our global activity and is a way to share with staff, students and alumni exactly where we go, what we do, who we see, and why. We hope it is as much an enjoyable read as it is informative!
