It takes place as part of Freshers Week 2015, a range of events organised to ensure that starting life at Dundee is made as easy as possible for the new arrivals.

“It is always an immense pleasure to be able to welcome our new students to the University, whether they are from Dundee, elsewhere in Scotland and the UK or further afield,” said Professor Downes.

“This week marks the start of a new chapter of their lives, one that will bring them into contact with inspirational mentors and peers. They will meet some of the finest minds in their respective fields, begin lifelong friendships, and savour a student experience that has yet again been voted the best in Scotland by students themselves.”

The University was recently rated number one in Scotland in the National Student Survey and also in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey, a position it has held for the past six years.
