Develop your writing and academic skills while at Durham University

Durham Centre for Academic Development – Here to help you thrive...


Working effectively and productively at Durham requires a range of academic skills and strategies. At Durham Centre for Academic Development (DCAD) We offer dedicated courses and workshops to help you develop and enhance these skills. These range from academic writing and giving effective presentations to digital skills and managing your time.

We also run one-to-one consultations for academic writing development and a drop-in service for maths and statistics. All classes and consultations are free and available to you throughout your time at Durham.

If you're already a student at the University, see our Sharepoint site for more information and to book sessions.

We're here for you whatever your background. You may be coming to Durham straight from school/ college. You may be the first in your family to go to university. You may be returning to study after a while away. Or English may be a second, third or fourth language for you. Whoever you are, we can help you be your best. Please read on to see what we can offer you throughout your time at Durham.
