We have courses at 3 levels, starting with our short Introduction to BSL course which takes place 3 times a year.

To any future students I would say, go after your dreams and don’t be afraid to make mistakes.
ESOL and Hospitality
Inga Griska came to Scotland in 2011 with little knowledge of English as a language.
“In 2014 I decided to do an ESOL course at Dundee and Angus College to improve my English writing skills. At the time I worked in a bar and developed an interest in hospitality so my tutors suggested I apply for a course.
“During my HNC and HND my favourite class was Human Resource Management. The hardest part was food hygiene as it’s difficult to learn the names of bacteria when English is not your first language!”
Inga then attended Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen to study for a BA in International Hospitality Management.
“I would eventually like to become a manager in the hospitality industry and make all those who contributed to my education proud."
