Find out all you need to know about starting your time at our University 7 – 14 January 2017
Before You Arrive
Here is some helpful information to look over for before you arrive in Dundee.
Applying for accommodation
Once you have firmly accepted your academic offer, you will be sent an email to invite you to apply for accommodation online.
For more information about the accommodation that we offer, please visit our accommodation webpages.
If you need temporary accommodation in Dundee (either for your parents, or while you’re waiting for your own accommodation to become available), please see the Visit Scotlandwebsite for information.
If you need information on funding and want to make sure you are receiving any loans you might be eligible for, visit our Student Funding pages.
It’s a good idea to get your loans sorted out before the start of term.
If you can, go to your local branch and open a student bank account before you get here. This will save time when you arrive, and will ensure you get your student loan into your account as quickly as possible when you start your course. (Remember to tell the loan company about your new account details by changing your details online).
You’ll find it convenient for certain transactions (such as arranging an overdraft) if the bank you choose also has a branch in Dundee:

You might find it useful to draw up a budget before you get here. Have a look at our living costs webpage to get a rough idea of costs.
The Budget Calculator on the UCAS website can also make doing the sums a bit quicker!
