At postgraduate level you can study the International Incorporated Master’s degree (IIM).

The IIM is designed for those students who do not qualify for direct entry to a postgraduate degree at the University of Dundee. This could be because of the grades achieved in your undergraduate degree; your current qualifications are not equivalent to a UK undergraduate degree or if you want to improve your academic and English language skills.

Our IIM will equip you with the advanced skills you need to complete your postgraduate study at the University of Dundee. You can study this over one or two terms depending on your academic qualifications and English language level. The one-term offers you a fast track route to your chosen degree course and is studied over three months. The two-term is studied over six months and provides additional academic English and subject-related support.

Key features of the IIM

  • Receive specialist support from experienced tutors
  • Small group tuition
  • Continuous formative assessment with detailed and supportive feedback

International Incorporated Master’s journey


We are committed to delivering an excellent student experience without compromising your safety. This means that we provide you with a blended learning experience that combines online and campus-based learning. If you are unable to travel to the UK, we have online courses available so that you can start your studies online and join us when you can do so.

Pre-sessional English (PSE)

If you are interested in an intensive academic English language course and assessment to prepare you for your studies at ICD, there is also an online pre-sessional English course delivered by Oxford International Education Group that you can choose to undertake. The duration of your PSE course will depend on your current English level. Please contact us to find out more. 

English Language Test

As an alternative to IELTS or the equivalent, the University of Dundee recognises the English Language Level Test (ELLT) delivered by Oxford International English Test Centre for entry to the International College Dundee. The ELLT is a three-step assessment taken to ascertain your current English language level and can be completed 100% online. Depending on your score you will either continue direct onto your chosen IIM programme at ICD or be advised to enrol onto a pre-sessional course.
