Welcome to Dundee

The city of Dundee is the fourth largest in Scotland and also its sunniest, thanks to its position in the Tay estuary. This busy, modern city is a fantastic place to live, work and study. In fact, the University of Dundee was named Scottish University of the Year in the Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016. UNESCO’s first City of Design, Dundee is packed with things to discover and do, from the beautiful waterfront area to the V&A Museum of Design.

Dundee has transformed itself into a delightful, contemporary metropolis. The city is bursting with life and also provides easy access to the surrounding countryside, ensuring that residents can enjoy the contrast between urban Scotland and the peace of its stunning hills and valleys.

Within the city, artistic and cultural attractions rub shoulders with world-class eateries. Two large shopping centres provide for everyday needs, but there is also an eclectic mix of independent stores, cafés, bars and restaurants. With culture and arts high on the agenda, residents of Dundee can enjoy the city’s galleries, museums, music venues, theatres, cinemas and more.

For those who enjoy sports, Dundee provides a wide range of options. Balgay Park is not only a delight for runners, but also includes one of the city’s pitch and putt courses. There’s an outdoor activity centre for those who like a little adventure in their lives and there’s even a seaside suburb with an award winning beach just four miles from the city centre.

Dundee is also home to two professional football clubs, a pro ice hockey team, five rugby union teams and a host of local clubs, covering everything from hockey to handball.

Dundee regularly sits at the top of UK ‘quality of life’ ratings. The friendly city is a welcoming place for students. Easy to navigate thanks to its compact size, yet packed full of fun, Dundee has a charming blend of excitement and opportunity that seems to gel particularly well with students. A 30-year, £1 billion masterplan is underway to ensure that the city continues to flourish further with each new generation.

Universities

There are two universities in Dundee, both well located near the city centre and waterfront areas. The University of Dundee was highlighted in the Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016 as the Scottish University of the Year. It is a popular centre for postgraduate and international study, as well as for domestic undergraduate courses.

Abertay University, known as the University of Abertay Dundee until 2014, is also popular with international students thanks to its focus on courses that meet the needs of particular career ambitions.

Getting around

Dundee’s compact size makes it a great city to explore by bicycle and the city centre can easily be navigated on foot. The city also has a fleet of buses with low floor entry, as well as new electric hybrid buses that boast free on-board Wi-Fi as well green credentials.

Dundee’s rail station connects the city with a range of destinations. For those wishing to see more of Scotland, regular services run to Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, as well as other areas.

Shopping

The Overgate and Wellgate shopping centres provide an excellent choice of shops and brands for Dundee residents, as well as a good range of eating and drinking options to recharge the batteries. The city centre is also home to a number of independent stores, from fashion brands to cafés, making this unique city a pleasure to explore.

The two shopping centres are connected by the High Street, with a plethora of winding side streets along the way. Tiny boutiques and funky shops create an inviting atmosphere, while the quirky indoor market at the Forum Centre completes the offering.

Nightlife

Whether you’re into pubs, clubs, comedy, live music, theatre or cinema, Dundee has the perfect venue for an evening out on the town. The waterfront area regeneration has led to a flurry of swanky new cocktail bars and appearing, making the city the ideal place for an elegant evening.

Clarks is the place to be for music lovers, with the Sunday Song Club having become an essential local gathering for completing the weekend. Or for those long winter evenings check out Mennies (AKA The Speedwell Bar) with its Edwardian interior and roaring fire. And of course the Art Bar is the place to be and be seen for those with any sense of artistic flair.

Restaurants and eating out

Whether it’s a lively lunch for a crowd or an intimate dinner for two, Dundee has the perfect place to eat. The city is packed with cafés, restaurants and takeaways, suiting all tastes and budgets. International cuisine rubs shoulders with local specialities like Arbroath Smokies. Seafood abounds and the many waterfront restaurants offer delightful viewing for those diners enjoying a slow, relaxed meal in good company.

Dundee also has a range of farm shops and regular farmers’ markets for those who want to try to create their own culinary masterpieces. Fresh, local produce of excellent quality is easy to come by and offers great value.
