The Falkirk Campus is easily accessible by car, however, it has limited car parking facilities. There are excellent public transport services to the campus and bicycle stands and secure cycle lockers are available.
Our Falkirk Campus Engineering workshops and Oil and Gas training facilities recently underwent a £1.2million refurbishment and are sector leading in their fields. They boast a Training Rig, Distillation Plant, Mini-Rig Lab, state-of-the-art workshops and a Simulated Control Room.
