THE best Scottish city for graduates has been named in a major survey.

Dundee was ranked the fourth-best city in the UK for graduates in the nationwide survey, conducted by price comparison website

The poll weighed up nine different criteria considered by graduates when determining where to move after university, including the price of rent, job opportunities, and the cost of transportation and socialising.

Richard Pool, employer engagement manager at the university’s Careers Service, said: “Dundee is synonymous with providing an exceptional student experience, but surveys like this prove that there is little reason for students to move elsewhere after graduation.

“Dundee is incredibly vibrant and diverse, enjoying all of the advantages of big city life in a more affordable and compact environment.

“It is exciting to think that the education our students receive, and the support we at the careers service provide, is ultimately contributing to the city’s future workforce.”

Earlier this year, a survey conducted by international education provider Oxford Royale, found that Dundee was also the least expensive city for students to live and study in based on living costs.
