Principal of Dundee and Angus College

About Dundee

Dundee is Scotland’s fourth largest city and has transformed itself in recent years into a lively cosmopolitan centre. Previously heavily industrialised, Dundee has now developed exciting commercial, cultural, and scientific dimensions which truly allow it to live up to its ‘one city, many discoveries’ label. The City now supports new and growing industries such as life sciences, digital media and arts. Additionally, the geographical area of Dundee and Angus offers the perfect combination of both city and country life.
