Anniesland College is a small, local further education college in Glasgow, Scotland, established in 1964.

Kenny Dalglish, the Scottish international football player was briefly a student, as an apprentice joiner, in the 1970s.

Alex Kapranos (Huntley) was a part-time lecturer in IT for a couple of years until June 2003, when Franz Ferdinand, the Glasgow indie rock band, of which he was lead singer/guitarist, signed a recording contract with Domino Records.

The college has 7 schools, offering a range of courses and levels of study, full-time, part-time or flexibly. This new building is at Hatfield Drive, with a -3 storey classroom block, 2 storey workshops, a multimedia library and nursery. Anniesland College is a community college, offering many outreach courses in community centres and schools. There are links with other colleges, universities and local industry including shipbuilding.
