Edinburgh College was formed on 1st October 2012 following the merger of Edinburgh’s Telford, Jewel & Esk and Stevenson Colleges.
Through the merger, the College inherited a strong legacy of staff, infrastructure and reputation, and continues to build on this, ensuring that the communities of Edinburgh, the Lothians and beyond have access to top quality higher and vocational education in a style and setting that meets their needs.
As well as being an excellent learning facility, Edinburgh College has developed several cross-campus projects involving green transport, renewable energies, academies for Tourism and Health, knowledge transfer and incubator hubs, and a community garden - all of which are contributing factors to a more dynamic and socially responsible way of working and learning.
Through investment in digital technologies, which support learning for students, projects such as the college radio and television stations provide real life design project and partnering opportunities to encourage business start-ups, self-employment and entrepreneurship.
The College is split over four main campuses, with a range of facilities available including; three salons, two restaurants, a nursery, a spa, sound and recording studios and conference hire facilities.
