Dundee University Access to Learning (DUAL) summer school


DUAL is for potential students who deserve a safety net to ensure they prepare and qualify for university this year. All will (due to circumstances beyond their control), lack entry qualifications and will have been involved in study (normally at school or college) within the last five years. Local applicants may be eligible for a local education department bursary.


This 5 week full-time course involves all students completing a online Personal Academic Skills module in addition to studying three taught subjects out of a list of around thirteen normally on offer.

discover learning at dundee


Some students may not be available when DUAL Summer School runs or wish to study off campus over a longer period. Others may simply wish to study a module for interest rather than four modules to qualify for undergraduate entry. Discover Learning at Dundee is a new and exciting online programme that allows students exactly this opportunity at different times during the year.

accommodation


The University of Dundee accommodates over 1500 students in four residential complexes - Heathfield, Belmont, Seabraes and West Park. The majority of accommodation is on or close by the city campus and all offer a comfortable home from home where you can settle quickly and meet new friends.


The residences have been the focus of significant developments in the last few years with over 1000 bed spaces opened in 2006 and 2007. The complexes comprise approximately 50 self-contained flats (each flat has its own kitchen and dining space) accommodating between five and ten residents. All our accommodation provides bedrooms with en-suite shower and toilet and the capability of cable connection to the University’s superfast broadband network.


Bedrooms are all single occupancy and are sized approximately 13 or 15 sq.m. (including the en-suite facilities). Kitchens are equipped with cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave and kettle. However, the following items are not supplied in any of the residences: crockery, cutlery, pots, pans, cooking utensils, bed sheets, pillow, blankets etc. Each complex has a coin-operated laundry available for all residents. Cleaning services are limited to communal areas during the period of the lease.


Belmont (450 residents) and Heathfield (426 residents) are located centrally on the city campus and yet are only ten minutes walk from the city centre. The residences lie adjacent to each other and the Institute of Sport and Exercise (ise), tennis courts and swimming pool.


The Students’ Association, Main Library and the Chaplaincy are also close by. Heathfield also accommodates the main property management office.


Seabraes (411 residents) is located between the city campus and the River Tay and is just a few minutes walk from all the amenities on the city campus as well as being close to the city centre. The original residence opened in 1995 and an additional 192 rooms were opened in 2006 for postgraduate and upper years.


West Park (300 residents) is located in a residential area mid-way between the city campus and Ninewells Teaching Hospital and is approximately 20 minutes walk from both, as well as having access to good public transport. The site also accommodates the West Park Conference Centre.


family accommodation


Unfortunately the University does not provide family accommodation, however there is a good supply of private accommodation near the campus. We strongly recommend that you do not bring your family to Dundee until suitable family accommodation is confirmed.


students with disabilities


We already accommodate a number of students with disabilities and will do our best to help you and any helper you may require. If your disability is severe, you should write to Admissions and Student Recruitment before you apply for one of our courses so that we can check out for you all aspects of living and learning at Dundee.
