It’s official – more Argyll College UHI students than ever before are successfully completing their courses.

Statistics released by the Scottish Funding Council show the proportion of Further Education (FE) students completing their full-time (FE) courses at Argyll College UHI in 2017-18 has increased by over 15% in the last five years.

The overall total of 76% is now nearly 10% above the national average, putting the college ahead of the pack in terms of successfully supporting its FE students to successfully complete their chosen courses.

Figures for the University partnership as a whole are also considerably higher than the national average figure (66.1%) with over 70% of students passing FE courses. The region’s results have increased by 2.8 percentage points on the previous year.

“We believe a significant factor in this success is our network of local learning centres, which enable students to study and achieve, with appropriate support, within their own communities.’’ said Principal Martin Jones.

“Successfully completing one of our FE courses is often not an end in itself but a means to progressing on to other courses or employment opportunities.  We’re delighted such a high proportion of our students are putting themselves in the position of being able to move on to positive destinations. ’’
