The Town and Campus
Our Barony Campus is set within a working 260 hectare estate, situated in the rolling landscape of Dumfries and Galloway in South West Scotland, and specialises in training and education for the land-based and animal care industries. At Barony campus you will have access to excellent practical facilities and specialist staff to support you through your studies.
The region's main town, Dumfries, is situated on the banks of the River Nith and is only 10 miles from the Campus. It is a bustling market town with an excellent shopping centre and a variety of pubs, clubs, sports centres, swimming pool and an ice rink.
We take pride in the friendly, relaxed environment which our students have enjoyed over the years, and the individual attention they receive from the teaching staff. When you are not spending time pursuing your studies, there are plenty of opportunities for you to enjoy the indoor and outdoor recreational activities. A wide range of high quality leisure facilities and services are available on the campus.
Your Own Course Tutor
You will be assigned a course tutor to help guide you in all aspects of your work and life at the college for the duration of your time with us. Our course tutors are all experienced, qualified subject experts, and, most importantly, very approachable. They are the first person to approach to discuss any problems with your work or life in general at the college.
Our Domestic Burser is available during the week and will help you with any difficulties with your accommodation or domestic life and a member of the Barony Campus warden team is available 7 days a week in the evenings, and will often take groups in to Dumfries at the weekends.
We also have a college chaplain who makes occasional visits and can be contacted at any time for personal and spiritual guidance.
