This year, the University of Dundee will run an innovative ‘Gifted and Talented’ programme for high-achieving students. The programme will consist of a mixture of thought-provoking workshops and interactive seminar sessions and will offer opportunities to learn from prominent academics at the University.
The programme will take place on campus from Monday 3rd to Thursday 6th July, where selected students will have the opportunity to experience academic life at a world-leading institution. Accommodation, meals and transport will all be provided by the University as well as some exciting evening events.
Participants will be expected to undertake a programme tailored to their individual subject interests and will experience first-hand what studying at the Scottish University of the Year is like. Those who successfully complete the programme will be eligible to receive an unconditional offer for either the MA or BSc Programme. Students will be expected to complete a written assessment and a group presentation whilst on campus.
The programmes on offer this year are:
A variety of evening entertainment, including an academic dinner, will also form part of the programme allowing participants a wider exposure to research interests of staff and of course to meet with other students.
Participants will be selected on the basis of past academic performance, predicted grades, a short personal statement and an academic reference. The target audience is Lower Sixth pupils aiming for AAB at A-Level or equivalent.
