Living in Dundee

The fourth largest city in Scotland, Dundee has an incredible history of scientific discoveries, a beautiful waterfront, and a rapidly growing population. Dundee is a bustling city and an exciting and vibrant place to live in. If you're thinking of living in Dundee, you should take a walk around the city, to explore your surroundings and get a good idea of its layout. The City of Discovery, as it is known for its many scientific breakthroughs, has a lot of interesting and unique landmarks to see - the Howff, for example, is a huge cemetery, with some beautiful and strange gravestones, and the 15th Century St. Mary's tower is worth a visit as it's the oldest building in the city. If you're struggling to fit in, the InterNations community, with its large number of forums and discussion threads, might be able to help you acclimatize to your surroundings.

Moving to Dundee

Only 36 miles away from Edinburgh, Dundee is a simple place to find, and it is quite easy to travel to. Many people moving to Dundee find that the area has many cultural offerings just waiting to be discovered - there are countless cinemas, art galleries, and museums in the area. The music scene is also thriving, with bands such as Placebo and Snow Patrol having origins in the city. Expats moving to Dundee, or any foreign city for that matter, might find their relocation stressful at first, but with the help of the InterNations community things should be considerably easier. The Expat Magazine has details on moving abroad, with articles explaining how you can make thorough plans before you start your new life as an expatriate and how to best tackle any culture shock you might experience.

Working in Dundee

The city is an employment and education center for the region, so you shouldn't struggle for too long to find work. There are over 300,000 people who only live within a 30 minute drive from the city center, and there are 600,000 who only live one hour away. Most of these people are already working in Dundee, but the job prospects continue to increase. The bio-medical and biotechnology sectors, for example, currently employ around 3,000 people in Dundee, and the city was ranked as the fourth destination in the whole of Scotland for its retail options. Although you shouldn't have too much trouble finding a job, you might still struggle to fit in once you start working. The Expat Magazine is a collection of articles on the InterNations website, with pieces written to help expatriates navigate their way starting out in a new job abroad. And you can of course also use InterNations to network and socialize with other expats in Dundee.

    For me, the InterNations events are the best part. I attend almost every get-together and always get to know lots of friendly fellow expats.
