University of Dundee

Clubs and social environment

Please tell us more about the social environment, sports clubs and societies and anything else you think candidates need to know about life at your university.


"There are so many students who come from different countries so it is a good place to expand your international horizons. The gym has a swimming pool, sauna and ball courts so you can play many sports here."
"There are many societies for sports, dance, academic subjects and other interests. There's pretty much a society for everything."
"There is a sports club for the university and there are tennis courts on campus."
"The sports clubs are amazing and very close knit. The organisation and bonding between teams helped me hugely in my first year."
"The sports clubs and societies try to have a lot going on to get people involved, which is good, while occasionally fundraising for charity, which could be done more."
"There's a wide variety of sports clubs and societies."


"The social environment of the university is excellent and inclusive. Sports clubs do extremely well at BUCS and the local league level and there is a broad range of societies covering many interests."
"The sports clubs at the university are very wide ranging in sports and in the ability needed to join the club. Most clubs also offer 'give it a go's' so you can try out the sports and see if any suit you."
"There are lots of societies and sports clubs on offer for all abilities at the university."
"Dundee has a range of clubs and societies available plus fairs to tell you about them so you can get to know about them before you sign up. Also, there are try out sessions so you don't have to feel obliged to join."
"There's a huge range of societies and sports clubs. Dance (my society) is the biggest on campus and we're hugely successful across the UK. There's a great variety!"
"Dundee has a vast amount of student societies so there is sure to be something to suit everyone."
"The sports union is very active and we have lots of clubs from fencing to shinty; we have it all. DUSA is our student union and it has a wide variety and people are encouraged to get involved. Because Dundee is smaller you truly seem to know everyone and can get involved in a lot."
"There's a huge number of options."
"The university has many societies where anyone can join and practise sports or other activities."
