What is Online Summer School?

Online Summer School is an alternative route for eligible students to earn an undergraduate place at the University of Dundee. It involves:

  • Preparing for University level study by completing a university skills module (Academic Skills online module), equipping you for university and beyond;
  • Getting lots of advice from a dedicated team of experts to help you along every step of the way. Each student is assigned their own online Personal Tutor to work with them throughout the course. Students who have completed the course the previous year (Student Mentors) are also constantly on hand to help students find what they need and ensure they progress well.

Why should I consider Online Summer School?

Online Summer School can be a compulsory condition of your UCAS offer or an alternative optional way of meeting University of Dundee entry requirements.

  • If your offer states that you need to attain specific grades in Online Summer School, then you must achieve this level to gain your university place in September via Online Summer School.
  • Your offer will indicate how many modules you need to complete, if any are compulsory and the grades you need to achieve.

Online Summer School will give you the best possible preparation for being a University of Dundee student. You will have access to modules, academics and resources that will enhance your learning and facilitate the transition to 1st Year. By reserving the months of June and July to study with us, you will earn a head start on other students.

Is the course full time?

No, you can learn in your own time. The course runs for 6½ weeks in June and July and is completed fully online. Online Summer School students will complete the Academic Skills Online module before undertaking their subject module(s).
