How can the Support and Guidance Advisors help you?

Course Choices

Our Support and Guidance Advisors can support you finding the right course. They’ll be able to point you in the right direction based on your future career aspirations, skills and strengths, qualifications and experience. They can also refer you to an external advice agency, such as Skills Development Scotland.


Support with Personal Issues and Money Issues

If you are experiencing personal or financial issues whilst studying at college, please don’t struggle on your own. Accessing support early can often stop a small problem becoming a crisis. Our Support and Guidance Advisors are here to listen and support. They also work closely with the Student Funding team and have a great deal of experience supporting students experiencing a range of issues. They can also support you to access external support, where appropriate. 

Career Advice

Choosing the right career is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make.  Luckily, you can access a wide range of information and advice at the College to help you make the right choice. Our Support and Guidance Advisors will be happy to chat about your options and steer you in the right direction.

Alternatively, you can also book an appointment with one of the specialist Careers Advisors from Skills Development Scotland who visit our campuses each week. They can assist with researching career choices, advising on the skills and qualifications you will need for specific careers and roles, job hunting, writing the perfect CV, completing applications and preparing for interviews.

To arrange to speak to a Support and Guidance Advisor or Careers Advisor, please enquire at our campus receptions or send an email to

Progressing to University

If you are planning to apply to university upon completion of your course, our Support and Guidance Advisors can provide information and advice on the UCAS application process.  You will find all the information that you need on the UCAS application process on Moodle.  

You may also be interested in articulation links we have with universities across Scotland.

Our articulation links provide clear pathways from an HNC/HND programme to a university degree and often offer students direct entry into the 2nd or 3rd year of a degree course. Your lecturer should be able to provide more information on specific articulation links related to your course or area of study.
