Borders College

Applications for Borders College courses close on 5th August

Apply today – to avoid being disappointed.

Applications for all full-time courses will close on Thursday 5th August 2021 at 4.00pm to allow for the implementation, and migration of a new Management Information System.

This essential work is part of an investment that Borders College has made to develop, not only the technology required to facilitate a state-of-the art student record and management information system, but also a brand-new website.

 Joanne George who is leading on the Management Information System development said:

“We are really excited about the new benefits the system will give to our students and staff. Students will benefit from being able to gain online access that enables full tracking of applications through to gaining access to view the progress of their studies once enrolled online by logging into the new student portal.

“In addition, our staff will benefit from the digitisation of all MIS related processes, which will allow more time to support our students.  Staff will also have better access to data to aid decision making, which includes an improved approach to the tracking and monitoring of students’ progress that will in turn support students to be successful.”

The timing of the change-over has been scheduled to coincide with the start of the new academic term so that students and staff will benefit from the enhancements from 17th August.

Applications for any courses that have places remaining, will open again on Tuesday 17th August at 10.00am. During the period from 5th August until17th August users of the website will be able to view the courses available and make enquiries.

Vice Principal for the Curriculum Heather Anderson at Borders College, commented:

“We are encouraging anyone with a desire to commence studying with us in August to apply for the course of their choice as early as possible, as places are beginning to fill up now and offers of places are being made.”
