All applications will be followed up with a face-to-face interview, once restrictions have been relaxed.

Newbattle courses are particularly valuable for people with few or no qualifications but with a desire to change their lives and achieve their personal ambitions. The college can also provide residential accommodation mostly with en-suite facilities.

The college remains the only adult residential college in Scotland and it has a proven track record of meeting the needs of adults and younger learners by providing transformative learning and offering extensive support.

College principal Marian Docherty said: “We are aware that education will be more important than ever during these troubling times.

"Through our focus on continuous improvement, we are confident that we will continue to achieve our aim to be Scotland’s Life–Changing College. We offer Access to Higher Education courses, in Arts & Social Sciences, Celtic Studies and Primary Education.

"These courses give adults the opportunity to return to learning and progress to higher education. The majority of our students have few or no qualifications and many have had disrupted lives and poor experiences of formal education.

"Newbattle offers them a vital second chance to improve their own lives and often those of their families.”
