"Studying abroad at Dundee was a great experience. It really is like what people say about it. You get to meet new people learn new things about different cultures. I really do recommend studying abroad. And when you do study abroad it is fun to hang out with other study abroad students, but don't just limit yourself to that. Join a club and become friends with people you meet in that club. I joined the women's rugby team while I was studying abroad at Dundee and I was able to travel more because they would take me to out of the city to games and events. The team went as fans to several international rugby games and I was able to go. If I hadn't met them then I never would have known that those games were going on nearby. It was a great experience and I still keep in touch with a few of my friends on the team."
"I had such a wonderful time abroad, and the time flew by much too quickly. I loved the University of Dundee. The University has such a lively student life that really enriched my experience. They are very friendly and helpful toward international students. I would encourage any student looking to study in Scotland, or even the United Kingdom in general, to consider the University of Dundee. Also, Brookdale was so helpful during the entire application and pre-departure process and I am very thankful for that."
