Dundee at 50: looking back and moving forward

2017 sees the 50th anniversary of the formation of the University of Dundee following its separation from the University of St Andrews.

The connection between the two universities is well established, dating back to the initial formation of University College, Dundee in 1881 and the subsequent joining of the two institutions six years later.

The next 70 years saw many changes (not least the decision to build a road bridge linking Fife and Dundee!) and led to the granting of a royal charter, which formally established the University of Dundee in August 1967.

In recognition of this anniversary we are planning to publish a series of blog posts throughout the year featuring alumni reminiscences and images from the 1960s.

If you have a story, photographs or simply a short anecdote to share with us, we would be delighted to hear from you!
