Dundee Or Stirling university??

I have offers from both Dundee and Stirling but haven't been able to visit either because of corona virus. I'm pretty conflicted. If anyone can answer any of these questions it would be massively appreciated.
what are the people like at each uni(ambitious/judgemental/open minded/boring?,
Is Dundee more of a party uni?
What are the people like in the cities?
Is Dundee polluted?,
(i'm quite badly asthmatic)
I love nature but Stirling appears slightly boring and 'safe' and i want a real life experience but slightly concerned about the air in Dundee and it just being a party uni.
Any insight at all would be great, thanks

Hi there I go to Dundee and I absolutely love it. Dundee is a better university and the city itself has a lot to offer. The nightlife is fantastic, I wouldn't classify it as a party uni necessarily but a lot of people go out, particularly to the Union. There is a huge mixture of people at Dundee, it has a very International feel too! I find everyone at Dundee so friendly, it's a very accepting city. It is a small city and therefore not polluted as there aren't a huge amount of cars. Going to Dundee is one of the best decisions I've ever made. Hope this helps!

Hi, I'm a Dundee student, I'll try to answer these :smile:
There is a whole mix of people in Dundee, most of the people I've met have been pretty fun and ambitious!
The nightlife on paper isn't great, but night outs are often pres-heavy, and with societies theres always themed nights out and pub crawls etc (I think most would agree its light years better than Stirling's). If you don't like partying there is still plenty to do tho with societies and sports clubs.
People in the city seem pretty nice
It's as polluted as most smaller cities are, but I know theres a push for electric transport, so that may change over the years
I think you'll really enjoy Dundee because you get a bit of everything; its in a beautiful location, there is some form of nightlife if that's what you fancy but its not too wild, and has a great mix of people so it should be easy to settle in!!
Hope this helps

Hey I have also received conditional offer from Dundee, Glasgow and Stirling. Before an hour back I almost sure to go to Stirling but I had a talk with Dundee’s ambassador and I am pretty much convinced I should go there for Mdc in psychology(conversion) and I am ruling out Glasgow because it is quite expensive.

The course you mentioned belongs to the School of Humanities and Social Sciences and Law. However, I have found that the same course is offered by different schools, such as the School of Life Sciences or Medical Schools, at other universities. Does this make any difference for future career prospects?
I had offers for Dundee and Stirling
