We focus on enhancing the learning experience, through working with students to develop their academic skills and supporting staff in their learning, teaching and continuing professional development.

The Academic Skills Centre's, STEP UP module was runner up in the recent Student Partnerships in Quality Scotland (sparqs) Student Engagement Awards. The module supports Articulation students in their transition from the College to University environment by focusing on the key academic skills required for direct entry into second year. It was a great achievement to be shortlisted and terrific to get this recognition for the work being done here at the University of Dundee.

This award follows the Academic Skills Centre receiving a commendation in the recent ELIR report as being ‘…a centre of excellence with a wide-ranging, innovative, responsive and proactive portfolio for students and staff.’
