(Photograph) - Students returned for the new session in many parts of Scotland this week, but for those in West Lothian College it was to a pound;17.8 million purpose-built building in an entirely different location - Livingston instead of Bathgate. The new campus, on a 23-acre greenfield site, was built through a public private partnership and claims to be the first completely new FE college to have opened in the UK for 25 years. The college has been designed as an "education park" with pavilions, terraces and a street, and can be used by other educational, community and business interests.
