University of Dundee

Diverse backgrounds

Please let us know whether you think your university does enough to attract and cater for students from a diverse range of backgrounds?

2018

"Yes, but I don't think it's enough and it should try to market itself more and attract people from all regions of the world. The popularity level of the university around the world could be better."
"I have many foreign students in my lectures, which allows me to hear differing perspectives and both interact and network with international persons."
"The university puts on lots of events for international students and Scottish students to learn about other cultures."
"The university does well towards attracting international students and even supporting them with settling in when they arrive."
"I think the university is represented by a wide variety of different people from different walks of life and cultures."

"There's a wide range of international students that make up a large portion of the student body."
"Dundee has a large international student population from all nationalities and walks of life. It offers both international programmes and funding for students from underprivileged areas."
"Definitely. There's a positive and diverse student population."
"It caters for those from different economic backgrounds but I think it's less diverse for nationalities than other universities."
"I think the university should focus on attracting students from a wider range of countries like Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Dubai. It would be good to have a greater variety of other cultures too."
"I am a foreign student myself and found the university of Dundee was a very attractive choice due to its great reputation and cultural diversity."
"I think Dundee does a lot to attract, and cater for, a hugely diverse student population."
"Our Islamic Society is very involved and regularly on campus. The union carries out Chinese New Year parties and Indian festivals as well. We also welcome people from international backgrounds during our freshers' week."
