The university facilities are generally very good. The library has long opening hours and they are open for 24 hours during exam season (which is very useful). The only things that need attention are the lack of computers in the library and the lack of silent study space. It can get extremely crowded during exam time.×

The course exceeded my expectations. There was a good amount of lectures per week and the lecturers were really good and sometimes exceptional and inspiring. The content of my course was really interesting, although I found my 'major' much more stimulating than one of my 'minors'. There is a good mix of exams, coursework and groupwork and groupwork was particularly good for meeting new people. Feedback from tutors was largely good, although one tutor was less helpful than my others.×

i stayed in the Furness College in my first year. It is a student hall and a en-suite room so I got my own toliet but have to share kitchen with 6 to students, which is not too bad. I think in deciding which hall student would like to stay in, consider the budget is crucial. As the prices varies across the type of room and college i.e. some is catered, some room is the basic ones, so you do have to share bathroom with others. Secondly, you may want to consider the location of the college, as some of them is really far away from the management schools. Thirdly, is the culture of the college and the variety of activities offered!×

Teaching varies from great to poor so you need to fill in the blanks with your own studies. Lecturers are generally helpful if you have a specific question. At first it's full on so you need to weather the rough ride of the first term. It gets a bit easier after that, but there is always study and project work and practice on the computer to be doing. There are always not enough resources, so you will need to get in there and make sure you get what you need. Facilities aren't great, but adequate. The technicians are friendly, but often rushed off their feet. There's a lot of waiting about for someone to help. Teaching hours drop off in the third year as you will have a project to do, so you will need to be self motivated. And there is a lot of maths ... a real lot of maths.×
Dundee has it's very own art building filled with studios. I do believe there is a lot for creativity in dundeeReport

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
