Dundee University Aces Tayside – Autumn 2021

A big hello from ACES!

We’re so excited to be back for a fun autumn programme – making lots of great work for your portfolios and guiding you through the application processes (if you’re applying!)

This past year has been totally bananas, but we’ve learned so much and we’ll be taking this forward in our hybrid programme. This means that most of our events will be online, whilst some of them will be on campus. They’re all evening or weekend, apart from the October holiday dates.

Either way – there’s loads for you to try so do come and get involved!
