What if finances or family circumstances prevented you from studying at university? What opportunities would you have missed out on?

We want to break down the barriers to higher education and ensure access to university is available to all irrespective of background or economic circumstances.

Access Summer School is a free five-week course in a supportive environment, offered by the University to help young people qualify for, and prepare for an undergraduate degree. 

Since its launch in 1993, over 3,000 students, who may not otherwise have been able to, have accessed higher education through the Access Summer School.

We need your help to transform more lives.

A young life can be changed forever with a gift of £1000.

With every £1000 raised, the University of Dundee can offer a free, fully supported place at Access Summer School in the summer of 2024.

Your gift will have a significant impact and will be a stepping stone on the journey to a new and exciting future for the next generation of prospective students.

Whether you can support a full place or make a single or monthly gift towards Access Summer School you will be making a real difference.

Please donate today and change a young person’s tomorrow.
