College Academy Taster Days

Dumfries and Galloway College are pleased to announce a week of taster days for senior phase pupils in the region.

These days are aimed at pupils currently in S3 – S6 and will run from Monday 12th December to Friday 16th December 2022 at our Dumfries and Stranraer Campuses.

Pupils who attend will be able to experience a number of taster lessons from our range of curriculum areas and see the courses they can sign up to study at college, whilst still at school.

As numbers will be limited, this will be on a first-come-first-served basis.
