Durham Centre for Academic Development
Inspiring excellence in learning and teaching. Using technology imaginatively and with relevance. Nurturing inclusive learning communities. Inspiring life-long learners. We foster education by design.
Each year DCAD prepares hundreds of students for life in their academic departments. 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.
We offer a range of options to help you develop and enhance your academic skills whilst at Durham. We offer support and training in areas such as academic writing, numeracy, time management and the effective use of educational technologies.
