Student Opportunities

Senior pupils

We work in partnership with Education Authorities to offer a number of work experience places. These usually work with DCA Print Studio, which can also accommodate pupils working through the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

Youth Achievement Awards

DCA programme offers many rich opportunities for Bronze and Silver challenges. Give us a call to plan a visit or use DCA Create Space.

Undergraduate Professional Practice or Learning Practice Placements

DCA staff teams are happy to participate in lecture series both on and off site to support Professional Practice programmes.

We are currently taking placements from University of Dundee, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design and the new Community Learning and Development course.

Postgraduate Research

DCA welcomes enquiries and proposals from postgraduate students.
