Welcome to West Lothian College!

Well done on making the choice to study at West Lothian College, a college that delivers a highly skilled and enterprising workforce of the future. We aim to Open Doors for you to high-quality learning and skills opportunities, workplace experiences or apprenticeships, or to support your progression on to university.

Ultimately we’re here to help you secure a positive and rewarding career with the potential for lifelong learning. In the national survey undertaken by the Scottish Funding Council last year, 96% of those students who completed with West Lothian College in 2015- 16 were in Further/Higher study or employment six months after finishing their course. As well as your core programme we have a range of volunteering, sports or international opportunities for you to take advantage of during your time studying us.

Last year, 90 of our students received recognition for their volunteering, 130 students and staff went on overseas study visits to enhance their vocational and technical skills, and our football, rugby and basketball teams were among the best in the University and College Leagues. Our students go out on industrial visits, host events, put on exhibitions and often showcase their work to the public and employers. On campus we have high-quality facilities to help you develop your practical skills. These include a professionally run training restaurant, commercially focussed hairdressing and beauty therapy area, and workshops for motor vehicle, carpentry, joinery, electrical, engineering and science. We also have a dedicated fitness suite and large sports hall (that you can join for £10 per year), a practical childcare space and an excellent business and computing infrastructure.

West Lothian College is ambitious for you. We want you to see the world, to feel as though you’re contributing to society and to progress directly on to a good job or to university. We want you to succeed and we have all the support you need to enable that. We look forward to welcoming you to West Lothian College in 2017 and helping you achieve your career goals.
