Borders College, Scotland, was formed in 1984 by the amalgamation of Galashiels Technical College, Henderson Technical College (Hawick), Duns Agricultural Centre and the Agricultural Centre, Newtown St. Boswells. On April 1st 1993 under the Further Education (Scotland) Act 1992, the College was transferred from the Borders Regional Council to a Body Corporate.

It operates from 3 main sites (Galashiels, Hawick and St. Boswells) and is the sole Further Education College and major provider of training in the Scottish Borders region.

Each year, around 8000 students enrol for a wide range of courses and programmes, both day and evening, to HND level and beyond, particularly in subject areas that will enable them to dovetail into local employment opportunities. Partnerships have been developed with a number of Scottish universities to provide students with a seamless progression to degree level programmes.
