Academic Ranking of World Universities

The University of Dundee
English Name: The University of Dundee
Region: Northern Europe
Country: UK
Found Year: 1967
Address: Nethergate
Website: http://www.dundee.ac.uk

Founded in 1881, the University of Dundee has grown to rank amongst the best institutions in the world. A long term partnership with St Andrews University from 1897 to 1967 resulted in Dundee having the structures and customs of an ancient university, coupled with the drive and ambition of a much younger institution. Dundee is world renowned for its Life Sciences, Medicine, Art and Design, Engineering, Law and Environmental disciplines. A strong research portfolio means that this relatively small and friendly institution punches far above its class on the international stage, while excellence in teaching is demonstrated by strong international student recruitment and high student satisfaction. There are over 80 nationalities represented in the student body.

Nobel Prize winning poet and honorary graduate Seamus Heaney has described the University of Dundee as

"having its head in the clouds and its feet firmly on the ground."

The ability to be both aspirational and down-to earth, to blend ground-breaking intellectual achievement with practical applications, has given the University its distinctive character.

Our aim has been recently rearticulated in our Transformation Vision. It is to:

"transform lives locally & globally through the creation, sharing and application of knowledge."

 

Today this aim translates as excellence in teaching and research and contributing to the social, economic and cultural life of Scotland and the wider world. We will continue to focus the University as it powers forward to become Scotland’s leading university with excellence in teaching, research and the wider impact of both these key areas of activity. The University's portfolio of Learning & Teaching, Research and Impact is already world leading in many areas.

 

Our Research ranges from the big to the small, from the study of space and the stars (to better understand our universe) to the study of molecular biology and biomedical advances (to cure cancers and other diseases). The University is top in Scotland for research in Art and Design, Civil Engineering, Biological Sciences and Laboratory-based Clinical Sciences (UK Research Assessment Exercise 2008). There were further strong performances in History, Geography and Environmental Studies, Nursing and Midwifery, Computing, and Philosophy. Every subject area submitted to the UK Research Assessment Exercise 2008 included some research that was classed as at 'world leading' level by the independent panels.

 

 

Our Learning & Teaching is equally diverse, with over 200 undergraduate courses available in 15 academic schools. Our broad portfolio of courses ranges from animation to renewable energy engineering, from comicsto medical technologies, from cancer biology to international business, and from psychology to jewellery design. Dundee is particularly strong on professional and accredited degrees, such as Medicine, Law, Dentistry, Architecture, Teaching, Accountancy and Nursing. There are further strengths in Life sciences, Engineering, Computing, Humanities and Environmental Sciences. Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, part of the University, is one of the UK's top art schools. Our Learning & Teaching is informed by our research, and develops graduates that are innovative, creative and highly sought after by employers. As part of a long-established commitment to teaching quality and student experience, the University encourages interdisciplinary learning across the subjects to ensure that students have a well rounded basis for their learning. We are ranked as having the best student experience in the UK(Times Higher, 2012).

 

Dundee has a particular focus on producing eminently employable graduates. Just five universities in the UK (Oxbridge and three London universities) produce higher-earning graduates with Dundee students picking up £24,299 in their first jobs on average and 76.3% gain a graduate-level job.  More than 1,000 students have made use of Dundee's Enterprise Gym since it opened four years ago. It was created to help students to develop enterprise and entrepreneurial skills and operates with the support of local businesses which provide practical help as well as sponsoring prizes and events. In a tough jobs market, such initiatives can only help Dundee's graduates.

 

We are a world-leader in transforming the knowledge we create into impact in the real world. Our academic staff lead the way in making research accessible. For example, our Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification leads the way in using research to inform, as the recent award from the Royal Society of Edinburgh demonstrates. The University is also working with five of the world's leading pharmaceutical companies (AstraZeneca, Boehringer Ingelheim, GlaxoSmithKline, Merck-Serono and Pfizer) to develop ground-breaking treatments for global diseases. This is one of a number of academic/industry partnerships for which the Unversity is leading the way.

 

The Sunday Times says that the University of Dundee has forged a reputation and identity that it has taken others centuries to acquire (2011). We are ranked by The Scientist as one of the best institutions in the world for which to work (http://the-scientist.com/2011/09/05/best-places-to-work/). Dundee attracts the best staff from around the world which contributes to its leading reputation in learning & teaching, research and impact.

 

The University is situated in the City of Dundee, on the east coast of Scotland, within close distance of the Scottish Highlands, Edinburgh and Glasgow. A city centre campus has all of the advantages for accessing the city, while retaining the feel of a proper campus university. Dundee has the highest number of students-per-head-of-population of any city in Scotland and the University helps define the city of Dundee as a City of Discovery and Learning. The University places itself at the heart of the city's academic, business and cultural life. The University was central to the successful bid to bring the V&A Museum to Dundee, the first outpost of the V&A outside of London (http://vandaatdundee.com/your-future/).

The Students’ Union is regularly ranked as the best in Scotland and amongst the best in the UK. It offers a range of services to students, including support, advice and advocacy and provides retail, restaurant and social facilities for staff and students. Over 70 student societies are currently affiliated to the Students’ Union catering to a variety of interests and specific groups including acting, debating, international students and a wide range of sporting activities.

The University of Dundee has an extensive provision for Sport and Exercise and has invested some £6 million in the last 4 years in extending and upgrading the sporting facilities. The Times Good University Guide accorded the facilities a 4* rating. The ‘International Student Barometer’ ranked the facilities 2nd in Scotland and 4th overall in the UK with a satisfaction rating of 87%.
