"It’s an incredibly exciting time to be joining Fife College. It comes on the back of a recent announcement of a new £90M campus to be built in Dunfermline. We are increasing both our part-time and HE provision across all our locations and working with employers and community organisations. We aim to put our students at the centre of everything we do. Can you help us do this?"
