Dumfries & Galloway College (DGC) is the Regional College in the South-West of Scotland.

DGC aims to create flexible learning approaches that suit everyone. There are two campuses, Dumfries and Stranraer that offer full and part-time study as well as online and blendied learning environments, but the College also offers vocational and work-based learning, apprenticeships, short courses and bespoke training.

The College's approach to learning is a reflection of the rural locality, the local economy and the changing patterns of lifestyles.
