Location

For a relatively small city with a population of just under 150,000, Dundee has impressively established itself as one of Scotland’s most popular student destinations.

Dundee’s two universities help give the city a vibrant feel and along with the area’s low cost of living and friendly atmosphere, Dundee presents an appealing choice for students looking for an alternative to big Scottish cities such as Edinburgh and Glasgow.  

Outstanding Universities

The University of Dundee enjoys a good academic reputation for Computer Science, consistently ranking in and around the UK’s top 40. Typical entry standards require either AABB at Scottish Highers Level or BBB at A-Level.

Abertay University also ranks among the UK’s top 50 institutions for Computer Science. Entry standards will typically require ABBB at Scottish Highers level or BCC at A-Level.

Job Opportunities

Dundee presents ample job opportunities for Computer Science graduates looking to establish a career within the gaming industry.

Rockstar North was founded in the city and the studio’s legacy lives on, with a multitude of game development studios calling Dundee home.

Encouragingly, the Scottish video game industry grew by 9% in 2014 and with the Dundee University Incubator providing a base for growing technology centric companies, the city looks set to remain at the forefront of Scotland’s digital success story.
