IF YOU’VE just re­ceived your exam re­sults and are think­ing about life af­ter school, re­mem­ber that we’re here to help. Your lo­cal centre is open next week so come along to speak to us about what cour­ses and op­tions are avail­able to you.

What­ever your par­tic­u­lar in­ter­est – from mar­itime skills to hair­dress­ing, hos­pi­tal­ity man­age­ment or pri­mary teach­ing – Ar­gyll Col­lege UHI has it cov­ered.

We have more than 200 cour­ses to choose from – at lev­els rang­ing from Na­tional 2 right through to BA (Hons) or BSc (Hons) – there’s some­thing for ev­ery­one.

So if you want to boost your ex­ist­ing qual­ifi cations, you’re look­ing for a change of di­rec­tion or you sim­ply want to make the most of the op­por­tu­nity to learn, achieve and ad­vance while in the beau­ti­ful sur­round­ings of Ar­gyll, why not visit your lo­cal Ar­gyll Col­lege UHI learn­ing centre and fi nd out what’s on of­fer.

With more than 80 full- time cour­ses start­ing this Septem­ber, prin­ci­pal Fraser Durie said now is the time to look into the op­por­tu­ni­ties pro­vided by the col­lege. ‘ Last year more than 1,600 peo­ple chose to study with us, which shows not just the im­por­tance of Ar­gyll Col­lege UHI to the lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties it serves but also the va­ri­ety of sub­jects and cour­ses on of­fer,’ he said.

‘ We’re con­stantly de­vel­op­ing our cur­ricu­lum to en­sure it best refl ects the de­mands of our lo­cal pop­u­la­tion, and have added sev­eral new cour­ses this year which we be­lieve will be pop­u­lar ad­di­tions to an al­ready ex­cit­ing range of op­tions.

‘ We now have a huge range of cour­ses avail­able cov­er­ing an ar­ray of sub­jects.

‘ I’d like to think there’s some­thing of in­ter­est for ev­ery­one, re­gard­less of age or back­ground.

‘ Na­tional sta­tis­tics pub­lished ear­lier this year show that more Ar­gyll Col­lege UHI stu­dents than ever be­fore are suc­cess­fully com­plet­ing their cour­ses, and we’re de­lighted that so many are able to move on­wards and up­wards, whether that be in terms of pro­gress­ing to other qual­ifi cations or in terms of mov­ing into em­ploy­ment.

‘ We look for­ward to wel­com­ing a new co­hort of stu­dents in Septem­ber. We’re confi dent that choos­ing to study at Ar­gyll Col­lege UHI is a de­ci­sion they won’t re­gret.’

Any­one in­ter­ested in fi nd­ing out what cour­ses are avail­able should either visit their lo­cal learn­ing centre to chat to our staff and pick up a prospec­tus, or else look at the Col­lege’s web­site at www. ar­gyll­col­lege. ac.uk
