2021 Covid-19 update

Following the announcement regarding schools earlier this week, our campus will remain closed until at least the middle of February. The Scottish Government is reviewing it's lockdown guidance on 2 February and we will update you on any changes after that through this page, our social media channels and email.

College staff will remain working from home, with our Student Support, Bursaries, Student Association and other support teams available to assist over email or phone.

Remember, we are here to help you. We know this is a difficult time for our students and we want to ensure that we help wherever we can. If you have any concerns speak to your lecturer initially, otherwise you can contact our support for learning team by emailing supportlearning@west-lothian.ac.uk

In line with Scottish Government advice we will review the campus closure on the 2nd February, with the campus closed until at least the middle of February. Any further updates will be communicated to you through this page, our social media channels and email.

We are still accepting applications for courses as normal through our website. If the course requires an interview, and you are invited for one, this will be done online or over the phone whilst the campus is closed. Please be advised due to current restrictions it may take longer to get back to you than usual. If you have any questions or issues please email enquiries@west-lothian.ac.uk
