Location


Dundee is in an idyllic location hugging the banks of the River Tay Estuary and has more hours of sunshine, the purest air quality, and more green spaces than any Scottish city! The city's people are famously friendly and open, and the relatively small size and close-knit community make Dundee both affordable to live in and a safe place to be. With about 150,000 residents, this is Scotland's fourth largest city.

There's a lot to do in Dundee and thanks to the fact that the university is in the city centre, it's right there on your doorstep. You'll find the major cultural centres, museums, theatres, a charming waterfront, restaurants, pubs, and nightclubs convenient to campus. The rest of Scotland, with its spectacular scenery and historic cities; the UK; and the rest of Europe are also within easy reach.

Courses


While attending the University of Dundee, you will enroll in 3 classes, each worth 5 U.S. semester hour credits. Some classes may be more or less credits. To determine the number of U.S. semester hour credits, you may use the following conversion: 2 ETCS is equivalent to 1 U.S. semester hour credit. Each class that you will take at the University of Dundee must be approved by UAB via the course articulation process.
 
Course articulation is the process that determines the UAB equivalent for the foreign courses you will take. Course articulation is a vital component of planning your experience. This process starts when you submit, to the Office of Education Abroad, a syllabus for each course you intend to take while abroad. Then the Office of Education Abroad works with the UAB Registrar, UAB department chairs, and advisors to determine the UAB course equivalency for each of your intended courses.
