The week will unfold as follows:

  • Monday 24 January – Construction and Engineering
  • Tuesday 25 January – Health & Social Care and Early Learning & Education
  • Wednesday 26 January – Hair & Beauty and Creative Industries
  • Thursday 27 January – Business and Computing

The date of virtual open week has been chosen to coincide with the opening of applications on the 18th January for the academic year that starts in August 2022.


In addition to course information, those interested will also be able to find out all about funding options, student support services, and the application process at the South of Scotland college.


The Student Association and key members of college staff will also be on hand to answer questions.


Dumfries and Galloway College sends a warm welcome to everyone who will be attending its virtual open week and reaffirms its commitment to ensuring that all its prospective applicants have the information they need to make the best decisions for their future.
