Ayrshire College was formed in August 2013 following a merger between Ayr College, James Watt College (North Ayrshire) and Kilmarnock College. Designed to serve the whole of Ayrshire, the college’s main campuses lie in Ayr, Kilmarnock and Kilwinning.

The college has a total of eight campuses, with over 14,000 students and 800 staff.

Courses and Subjects

Courses at the college are divided into six directorates: Business and IT; Care, Education, Sport and Fitness; Creative; Hospitality and Tourism; Partnership and Employability; and Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

Courses offered range from introductory programmes to Higher National Diploma (HND) and degree level. All programmes are aimed at preparing students for work, and many include placements so that students can gain relevant work experience. Some courses provide a direct entry into degree programmes at a number of universities.

Facilities and Services

Each campus has a great range of facilities including student services, refectories and even training restaurants run by hospitality students. Some campuses also have beauty and spa salons offering treatments.

Some campuses offer specialist training such as the Aeronautical Engineering Training Centre on the Ayr Campus and the Kilmarnock Campus student motor vehicle garage. The Kilwinning campus has a brand new Centre of Excellence for Computing with state-of-the-art equipment.
