Is the course full time, all day?

No - you can learn in your own time. The course takes 6 weeks in total to complete running in June and July each year, so you must be available to study online daily throughout that period. The course can be done completely online at times. This can be done at home if you have reliable broadband access or on campus if you need to use the resources/facilities. Online Summer School students will complete an initial Academic Skills induction course before undertaking their subject module(s).

To summarise - why should I accept my place on Online Summer School?

  • Online Summer School will give you the best possible preparation for being a University of Dundee student.
  • By reserving the months of June and July to be with us, you will earn a head start on other students.
