Study with Us

Each year Durham Centre for Academic Development (DCAD) prepares hundreds of students for life in their academic departments through our Pre-Sessional and Foundation Programmes. In addition we support those developing as Teachers of English as a Second Language through our MA TESOL and Applied Linguistics Programme.

If you are an international student, a mature learner returning to education, if you are thinking of changing academic field, or your qualifications do not allow direct entry, we can help.
