Why Dundee?

Dundee is nestled on Scotland’s beautiful east coast. It’s Scotland’s fourth largest city. It’s also the sunniest. It’s around 60 miles from Edinburgh, 80 miles from Glasgow, and 150 miles from the Loch Ness Monster.

Dundee is a little pot of gold at the end of the A92 - The Guardian 

It’s small enough to get from A to B by foot, but large enough to have great shopping and vibrant nightlife.

It's also home to one of the most significant biomedical and life sciences communities outwith Oxford and Cambridge.

Dundee is a contemporary city full of energy and vision—it has one of the highest student population ratios in the UKand it’s the perfect environment for a Biomedical Science student to learn their trade.
