NameUniversity Of Abertay Dundee
Address and LocationOne of the UK's northernmost universities, Dundee is set over a compact city-campus 5-minutes' walk from the town centre. The university feels as though it's out of town, thanks partly to its scenic views over the River Tay.
Background and HistoryOriginally founded in 1883 in response to the town's booming industrialisation, Dundee's University College was incorporated into the nearby University of St. Andrews shortly after. Like York, Sussex and Strathclyde University, Dundee became an independent university in 1967 as part of the government's move to increase access to higher education. Driven by research, Dundee is a member of the Association of Commonwealth Universities.
