5. University of Dundee

After an astounding climb of 20 places in 3 years, the University of Dundee is now placed 5th in Scotland, with 6 subjects getting Top 10 scores. Student Satisfaction is pretty good too – the university is clearly getting things right. Students benefit from small classes, and the interdisciplinary approach to both teaching and research helps them develop a wide range of transferable skills, attractive to employers; perhaps another reason why Graduate Prospects have climbed yet again.

The city is also booming, transforming the waterfront and with the flagship V&A Museum of Design Dundee due to open in 2018. Named the 'coolest little city in the UK', Dundee is also an affordable place for students to live, and a free nightbus helps students make their way home safely after nights out.
