New courses start at Lews Castle College

The first new students enrolling at Lews Castle College for session 2011/12 begin their courses with Induction this week.

This session is unique as it is the first where the college and UHI [University of the Highlands and Islands] are able to offer degree courses having been granted full university status.

Callum Ian Macmillan Head of Marketing at Lews Castle College, said: “Demand has been strong for places on courses at Lews Castle for the 2011/12 session, which starts this week, with a number of courses filling up more quickly than usual, but wherever possible we will try to accommodate students who are late applicants and have the requisite entry requirements for courses.”

It is understood that there are still places available on the following courses - NC Engineering, Introduction to Construction Trades, Steps to Further Education, Cosmetology / Hair and Beauty, Hairdressing and Traditional Music and Gaelic.

Mr Macmillan, added: “There are places available on these courses, but places also become available on others at the start of session due to people changing their choices at the last minute, so our advice is contact the college with an application as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”
