Supercampus go-ahead

22nd July 2005 at 01:00
Dumfries and Galloway College has received confirmation in principle from the Scottish Further Education Funding Council of a pound;27 million package to relocate to Crichton campus in Dumfries.

Once completed, Scotland's first tertiary "supercampus" will combine the college's activities with campuses from Glasgow University, Paisley University and Bell College on a historical site which dates back to the early 1800s and is known as The Crichton.

Tony Jakimciw, principal of Dumfries and Galloway College, said: "The college is all set to pioneer an opportunity which is utterly unique in Scotland - a chance for students to benefit from the best of both worlds and access cutting edge facilities."
