The University of Dundee has been ranked 6th in the UK and top in Scotland for graduate prospects in the 2019 edition of the Complete University Guide league tables, which have shown Dundee to be one of the best places in the UK for employability of students.

Professor Karl Leydecker, Vice-Principal (Learning & Teaching), said, “We are now top in Scotland and sixth in the UK for graduate prospects, with over 85% of our recent graduates going on to graduate level employment or further study. This is testimony to the quality of the education and training we provide and the talent and hard work of our students. We have also seen a notable rise in the entry qualifications of our students to 15th in the UK, while our overall ranking of 31st sustains our overall position after strong rises in recent years.”

In addition to a number one placing for Forensic Science, Dundee achieved top ten places for the UK in another eight subject areas – Dentistry (2nd), Education (3rd), Medical Technology (5th), Anatomy & Physiology (6th), Biological Sciences (6th a rise from 18th place last year), Medicine (6th), Law (8th) and Art & Design (9th).
