What's more important than a choice about your future?

Whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever you want to be and whenever you’re ready, choose a course and college that give you the skills, knowledge and experience to achieve your career goals.

Here are a few reasons why you should #ChooseCollege.

College is for everyone

There’s flexibility, funding and the chance to earn while you learn

You can choose to learn with us by studying full-time or part-time. This includes distance learning, day release, evening courses, SVQs and apprenticeships.

You can combine your learning with your school, family or workplace commitments.

Colleges offer hundreds of options and pathways including:

  • starter courses
  • vocational training
  • apprenticeships
  • higher education and degree qualifications
  • professional qualifications
  • online courses to help your job and career prospects

There are many funding options to support you while you learn. This includes bursaries, discretionary grants, and funding to cover childcare costs. We can help you get the right funding.

You’ll get the skills and qualifications you need

95% of our graduates move on to a job or into higher learning.

Two in five of our leavers go on to university. We also run degree-level programmes at the college. So, you can choose college to get your degree.

Thousands of people study at college as part of their occupation. Employers across Scotland use colleges to fill skills gaps, and upskill and retrain their workforce.

You’ll get the work experience employers want

Scotland’s colleges are renowned for strong partnerships with businesses and industries. Colleges are Scotland’s biggest provider of Modern Apprenticeships, and they work closely with businesses to shape the curriculum. That puts college students way ahead when it comes to obtaining skills for jobs.
