Options for Senior School Pupils

Dundee and Angus College works closely with local authorities in Dundee and Angus to ensure a successful delivery of school/college partnership provision.

If you are in S4 to S6 you can spend part of your time studying at D&A College, helping to shape your future career or studies.

You can choose to study a Foundation Apprenticeship programme in 11 different areas, or a range of courses, from National 4 to SCQF level 7 at our campuses in Dundee and Arbroath, as part of your school timetable.

Your college course is SQA certified and will appear on your SQA certificate, if successfully passed, along with your Nationals, Highers and Advanced Highers.

Find out more in our Foundation Apprenticeship section, or see the range of other courses below.

Why study at college as part of my senior phase?

  • Access a wide choice of courses in a broad range of subjects from hair and beauty through to criminology and cybersecurity.
  • Courses are available at a range of levels from National 4 all the way to SCQF level 7 (the level above Highers)
  • The range available means there is an option for all types of learners, from academic and theoretical to practical and hands-on
  • Taking a college course while still at school is a good way to help prepare for life beyond school, whether that is moving onto a higher level of learning, an apprenticeship or into employment
  • Dundee and Angus College has a focus on careers not just courses, meaning taking a college course can help you prepare for and get an insight into the world of work while still at school
  • Most courses are delivered in units, meaning assessment is continuous rather than all resting on one end-of-course exam.
  • As a college student you can get a student card and use college facilities like other students – there is a wide range of support available to support your studies, from libraries and digital support to student services and health and wellbeing.
