The University of Dundee has recorded one of the best scores in the latest International Student Barometer (ISB).

Feedback was provided by more than 3 million students worldwide across all student types, levels and years of study.

The latest ISB survey reported an overall average satisfaction of 89.6% among Dundee students, representing the highest score of any participating Scottish university and 2nd in the UK.

A total of 199 institutions took part in the survey in 2018, with forty-four UK institutions participating.

Wendy Alexander, Vice-Principal of International, said: "In a year when participation rates rose enormously we are delighted to have once again recorded such an excellent score at the top end of the International Student Barometer."

"This feedback demonstrates how we prepare and support our international students to assimilate to life in a new country quickly. Making them feel truly welcome when they are miles from home is always foremost in our minds."

"Embarking on a degree in another country is often the biggest investment an international student and their family will make in decades so we are proud to offer a first-class experience that helps the world’s brightest and best students fulfil their future ambitions."
