“I am from Nigeria and I am currently enrolled to the MSc Accounting and Finance programme. Dundee is small city with a decent number of people which makes it a quiet place for studies but my main attraction was the University of Dundee which has incredible ratings with an outstanding growth rate. Also, the University of Dundee offers similar modules to what I did in my previous study.

“I feel honoured to be awarded this scholarship. It has been a blessing to me and my family. Also a huge thanks to the University of Dundee for this wonderful opportunity. God is great. Getting to Dundee has been an exciting experience for me. The highlands, Dundee law, different magnificent restaurants from different cultures, the live bands at the pubs.. but most interesting thing I love here is the people, they are really friendly and helpful. I love it here.

“Dundee is a quiet city with fun activities. That is a good mix for me which makes it a student welcoming destination.”

Friendships and family links are closer in Nigeria than any other country. When we meet our new student intake; we find that the vast majority from Nigeria have chosen to study with us because of a recommendation from a friend or family member who studied with us previously.


Here at Dundee we pride ourselves on being a close family with services in place; to support our international student community. We have an award winning student Union and a student association with over 120 student societies, including the increasingly popular Africa and Caribbean society.
