Dundee and Angus College is a further education and higher education college in Dundee, Scotland. It is the only college in Dundee, and, with approximately 23,000 enrolments, is one of the largest in the country. [1] [2] [3] [4]

Established in 1985 by the merger of Dundee College of Commerce and Kingsway Technical College, and then in 2014 by the merger of Dundee College and Angus College, Dundee and Angus College offers courses for people over the age of sixteen, involving school-level qualifications such as Higher Grade exams, work-based learning, vocational training as well as Further and Higher Education programmes leading to nationally and internationally recognised qualifications including SQA national and higher national certificates and diplomas.

The College has two campuses in the city the Kingsway Campus and the recently opened £48million Gardyne Campus.

It has a number of centres of excellence including a New Media Centre which gives students access to the latest technology for working and learning in industries such as web design and for developing graphic and animation software; and The Space, a purpose-built venue for performance and training which is the home of the Scottish School of Contemporary Dance. The opening of the Gardyne Campus in 2011 saw the launch of the newly refurbished Gardyne Theatre, a 400 seat, lyric theatre, open to the public which has quickly become the venue for a range of performances including, Scottish Opera, theatre groups, and internationally renowned musicians.

Dundee and Angus College also works closely with the city's universities and schools, providing access courses to gain credits needed for advancement to university and providing vocational courses for secondary school students aged 14 and 15 for a few hours a week in fields such as construction, and hairdressing and beauty therapy.
