DUNDEE UNESCO City of Design
Dundee is home to the exciting V&A Dundee, which opened in September 2018. V&A Dundee is the international centre for design for Scotland – the first ever design museum to be built in the UK outside London. Housed in a world-class building at the heart of Dundee’s waterfront, it will host major exhibitions, celebrate Scotland’s design heritage, inspire and promote contemporary talent, and encourage design innovation for the future.
The University of Dundee’s Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design (DJCAD) is Top in Scotland for Art & Design (Complete University Guide 2018).
