Location:As a city, Dundee is a great size. It's big enough to have a great buzz about it (on and off campus). With the Dundee Contemporary Arts and the Rep Theatre - "Scotland's only full time ensemble theatre company" - within close proximity, a good dose of culture is never far away. Dundee also has a vibrant music scene (including local teenage sensations, The View), and regularly attracts the top bands on tour with its large and middle-sized venue (both Paul Weller and Iain Brown recently played Dundee's Caird Hall).
Other live venues include the brand new Fat Sams Live, The West Port, the Doghouse, the Reading Rooms, and the University's own Union DUSA which hosted Radio 1s Big Weekend in 2006 and was awarded Best Students Union in the UK for the past three years.
Dundee benefits from one of the highest student/staff ratios in the UK and was quoted as the "Friendliest campus in Scotland" by the Sunday Times University guide.
