The College campus offers an inspiring, relaxed and friendly atmosphere for both teaching and learning. It provides everything students may need during their studies and is conveniently located close to the City Centre, Abertay University and the University of Dundee.

Inside the College, our large lecture hall, seminar and common room facilities are of an excellent standard and the College continues to invest in these facilities, to ensure it is providing the best services for its students.


Teaching is through a combination of lectures and tutorials; independent study is also expected. The College has a lecture theatre and seminar rooms that will be used for classes.

You may be assessed through writing essays, class tests, exams, presentations and group work and participation through our Virtual Learning Environment. This all plays a part in continuous assessment and your final grade.

Each member of teaching staff has office hours when they are available to offer academic support to students.

In addition to teaching spaces, there is the Shaikh Hamdan Library, the Shaikh Maktoum Garden, an IT suite, Student Hub and a Common Room containing a TV, seating, and vending machines.
