International College Dundee (ICD) is an embedded college, offering international students pathways leading to undergraduate and postgraduate degrees from the University of Dundee, one of the top 30 universities in the UK (The Times & Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019). ICD delivers the first stages of a four-year integrated undergraduate or an integrated postgraduate degree. Upon successfully completing with ICD, students will continue their degree studies directly with the University of Dundee.
Students at ICD learn subject-specific modules in addition to English language, as part of their curriculum, before moving on to the next stage of their degree with the University of Dundee. Small class sizes and expert academics are some of the key advantages of studying at ICD. The university’s industry-aligned courses reap great benefits for students, as graduates from Dundee are highly sought after by employers worldwide. In the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey, published in August 2018, 96.4% of graduates were either in work or further study six months after graduation.
In the latest Research Excellence Framework (2014), Dundee was ranked among the very best in the UK for its research work. Over 30% of its funding comes from research, which is then translated into ground-breaking solutions for the environment, health and the economy. ICD students will be a part of a talented and diverse community of academics.
With a vibrant student-centred community, Dundee is a great place to live in and is considered Britain’s ‘coolest little city’ (GQ Magazine) and is Scotland’s fourth largest city, with a population of about 150,000. The close-knit community creates a welcoming environment for international students and makes Dundee a safe and affordable city to live and study in. The city is located on the east coast and is a perfect spot for enjoying spectacular Scottish landscapes and green spaces.
