List of further education colleges in Scotland
Further education colleges offer courses for people over the age of sixteen, involving school-level qualifications such as Higher Grade exams, as well as work-based learning.
Scottish colleges are funded primarily by the Scottish Funding Council, with tuition fees paid by individual students or their sponsors.
