The Vice Chancellor’s Africa Masters Scholarships are being offered by the University of Dundee to outstanding candidates who wish to pursue a degree program at the institution.
The University of Dundee is a Scottish public research institution located in Dundee. It was established as a university college in 1881 with a contribution from the wealthy textile company Baxter family. During the most of its early history, the institution was a constituent college of the University of Saint Andrews, alongside United College and St Mary’s College, both of which were located in the town of St Andrews. Following tremendous expansion, the University of Dundee was granted autonomous university status by royal charter in 1967, while keeping aspects of the previous university.
The main campus of the university is located in Dundee’s West End, which contains many of the university’s teaching and research facilities; the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee Law School and the Dundee Dental Hospital and School. The university has additional facilities at Ninewells Hospital, containing its school of medicine; Perth Royal Infirmary, which houses a clinical research centre; and in Kirkcaldy, Fife, containing part of its school of nursing and health sciences. The annual income of the institution for 2020–21 was £275.7 million of which £73.9 million was from research grants and contracts, with an expenditure of £269.0 million.
