On 1 August 1967, the University of Dundee came into formal existence by virtue of a Royal Charter. A longstanding relationship with St Andrews had come to an end. Dundee was now free to develop in the ways it wanted to. Free, that is, subject to the same constraints of government policies, funding regimes and student choices which all universities in the UK faced then and still face now.


The core purpose is to transform lives, working locally and globally through the creation, sharing and application of knowledge. In so doing we intend to become Scotland’s leading university.


  • Excellent research requires excellent ideas. We have some of the best researchers in the world working for us, developing ideas that make a positive impact and difference to the lives of people, the economy and the planet.
  • The expertise spans from artificial intelligence to aerospace engineering, from data analysis to drug discovery and from growing and developing communities to global sustainability. This diversity allows us to be joined up in our approach and interdisciplinary in our thinking, subsequently allowing us to address many local and global challenges.


The Careers Service at the University is not just a building you enter before you graduate.  We're made up of trained, dedicated and professional members of staff.
