Our College is located in the beautiful South of Scotland, the gateway to three countries - Scotland, England and Ireland; the perfect location to learn, live and explore.
The main campus is situated in Dumfries (the capital of the Region), the College has another campus in the town of Stranraer, 75 miles to the west of Dumfries.
The College's approach to learning is a reflection of the rural locality, the local economy and the changing patterns of lifestyles. As a major employer and a dynamic agricultural learning institution, the 'digital' revolution has been actively embraced by us, and its many forms are fast becoming the basis of our organisation's operations and academic delivery.
Although the College has two campuses and many learning centre partnerships across the Region, we are a College without walls - creating flexible learning approaches to suit everyone. This means learning opportunities are varied and abundant - from full-time courses to flexible part-time courses, from learning in College to learning at home, work or the top of The Merrick (local fell walking landmark) or beyond.
The range of learning includes primary skill development to degree level (articulation links with Crichton University Campus in Dumfries) and everything in between. You are never too young and you are never too old - many 'retired' students are creating new lives for themselves by: obtaining qualifications that escaped them when they were younger, enjoying new hobbies and interests or creating entrepreneurial ventures. Mature students have often joined the College to help them develop or change their career paths. Others have joined us to help them build confidence to seek employment after a period away from the working environment (e.g. raising a family).
