University of Dundee


City Campus, Off campus


Our online course covers the fundamental principles and practice of records management and information rights. It provides you with the basic core competencies, knowledge and skills required to work professionally in records management and/or information rights.

Our focus is very much on a mix of the theoretical and the practical. You must be working or volunteering in an appropriate professional environment both prior to and throughout your studies so you can apply what you are learning.

The quality and breadth of the university's provision is unrivalled and the excellence of the courses has been recognised by academic and professional accreditation from the University of Dundee, Records and Information Management Professionals Australasia and the Archives and Records Association, UK and Ireland. CAIS has also been highly commended by the Information and Records Management Society, UK.
