Edinburgh College update

Due to covid19 there has been a delay in the recruitment of National 5 and Higher subjects. We have been advised we will open the application links for National 5/Highers in August 2020 once the SQA exam results have been released as lecturing staff don’t accept students onto the subject until they have the entry requirements. Applications are likely to open around 6 August. See link below.

http://www.edinburghcollege.ac.uk/Courses/Advanced%20Higher,%20Higher%20and%20National%205

The National 5 & Higher subjects are delivered as individual part time courses, any student studying SQA subjects are restricted to studying a maximum of 2 a year. A list of subjects we are offering and timetable structure can be found on the college website, the cost is £320 per subject. Please check our website for further details.

There is no college funding available to students but students can be eligible for a remission of fees if they or their parents are receiving a government benefit or contact Skills Development Scotland in the summer to enquiry about ITA funding.

The next SQA subjects will begin in August 2020 and end in May 2021 when the end of year exams are held.

Virtual work experience – Architecture

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve launched a portal of virtual work experience for secondary pupils who are missing out on work experience with us this term due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

When it became clear that we would be unable to host our usual annual intake of young adults for work experience in our Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow offices with a bespoke in-house, one-week programme, we designed this platform to replace it.

The website content, which is freely available [workexperience.hfm.co.uk], aims to continue to motivate and encourage young people to consider a career in architecture and the construction industry during lockdown. The programme mirrors our office-based experience and can be completed at home with no time restrictions.
