South Lanarkshire College is in East Kilbride. East Kilbride is Scotland’s 6th largest town and is around twenty minutes drive from Glasgow city centre. East Kilbride offers the best of both worlds – lots of parks and green country fields as well as excellent shopping, recreation and cultural facilities. Excellent transport links to Glasgow and Edinburgh make East Kilbride an ideal location. London is only a one hour flight away from Glasgow.

East Kilbride is home to many high tech industries and globally renowned companies such as Coca Cola, Rolls Royce and Burns Stewart Whisky Distillers. There are lots of fun things to do near the College – we have a country park right on our doorstep, a loch where you can take part in water sports and there are a number of gyms and swimming pools. We also have several golf courses, a cinema, an ice rink, a Playsport centre which includes freestyle jumping, a theatre, an arts centre and lots of restaurants and bars to choose from. The town centre is home to a large mall with 180 shops, catering and leisure outlets.
