The University of Dundee has a clear mission – to transform lives, locally and globally, by the creation, sharing and application of knowledge. It does this through world-class teaching, pioneering research, and work that has social, cultural and economic impact.

With an annual turnover of over £250m, 17,000 students and over 3,000 staff, the Univeristy of Dundee sits at the heart of city that is in the midst of transformational change – highlighted by the opening in 2018 of V&A Dundee and the forthcoming arrival of the Eden Project – making it one of the best places in the UK to live, work and study.

The University of Dundee’s new University Strategy to 2027 focuses on Dundee’s standing as a triple intensive university seeking to bring excellence to all that it does - with research, education and engagement equally weighted.
