Abertay union is a no-go for a night out, they need to fix that because the uni is highly missing out. Most students go to Dundee Union for a good, cheap night, as well as various other nightlife facilities.×

I don't find the modules in my course equally challenging or interesting. I could say that out of seven modules only one is fairly challenging. For another of the modules in first year I was required to write a lot of documentation and essays, which I didn't find quite relevant to what I am studying. The amount of feedback I've received so far is satisfactory but it could be more.×
A lot of pubs and clubs that vary to different peoples desiresReport
Focus sometimes appears to be on drinking, sport and computers and other degree programmes/age ranges get ignored.Report

Dundee is a cheap city. For coffee, aroma (the on-campus coffee shop) is way cheaper than starbucks, costa, etc. Remember to use your student card at mcdonalds for free cheeseburgers or mcflurrys and go to project pie (pizza shop) for a good student discount. Work is easy to get, I'd suggest a supermarket, or fast food outlet as they are always hiring, and even the BT call centre is directly across the road so a job there is easy to get to after classes. First year isn't really difficult so I'd try to save money then and use it for 4th year when you need to spend all your time at the library. If you are staying off campus and need a bus - look into a unirider bus pass, much cheaper that a ticket everyday. And if you are bringing a car - be careful for double yellow lines, the parking officers are ruthless in dundee and they all wear body cameras, so can charge you a hefty fine. Saying that though, in Scotland you are only legally required to pay parking charges issued by the police or council, so don't get tricked into paying money you shouldn't! For food I'd suggest bringing your own snacks because the campus shop can be quite expensive for basic snacks like crisps, chocolate, cereal bars, etc.×

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.
