The opening of applications for the 2024/25 academic year follows news last month that Fife College is officially one of the best colleges in Scotland to go from ‘learn’ to ‘earn’.

According to the latest Scottish Funding Council report, 94.9 per cent of successful full-time students from the College reported that they had gone from completing their course to a job, training and/or further study three to six months after qualifying.

Achieved in part thanks to the College’s close links to local industries and employers, the figure is the highest ever recorded, up 1.5 per cent on the 2020/21 number and much higher than the latest college sector average (82.9 per cent).

Jim Metcalfe, Fife College Principal, said: "The transition from school to college is a major step, and we are dedicated to ensuring that every school leaver in the Fife region has the opportunity to realise their ambitions.

"This guarantee to school leavers reflects our commitment to making further and higher education accessible and tailored to the individual needs of each student.

“Education is a powerful catalyst for personal, economic, and community development. By guaranteeing an offer of a place to eligible school leavers, we aim to remove barriers and provide a seamless transition to higher education for local talent.

“Open to all, our 2024/25 course offering covers 40 different subject areas. With full and part-time study options, from starter courses and apprenticeships up to Higher National and degree pathways, we are committed to making sure there is something for everyone at Fife College.”
