Studying at ICD
When you enrol at ICD you will be a student at the University of Dundee straight away. You will study on the same campus and use the same services and accommodation as other University students. The on-campus college setting is close to University accommodation. In addition, you will receive special support from the ICD team, helping you settle into your new life in Scotland.
As an ICD student, you will have tuition in small classes from experienced teaching staff. This means that you will receive individual attention and support from your ICD tutors as you focus on improving your academic skills. As well as the English modules you will be taking as part of your ICD course, you can also make use of the free English language support offered by the University after you finish at ICD.
