“One of the best things about studying at Kirkcaldy campus is the quiet and serene environment…the warm reception I’ve received makes it feel like a home away from home. The staff are proactive in supporting students – I’ve received the best support and guidance from all my lecturers.”

Our Kirkcaldy campus has a strong community feel. It contains its own library, clinical skills centre, lecture theatre, and teaching rooms.

The campus also benefits from on-site accommodation, a Support Hub and social spaces. The student hub and dining room have recently been refurbished.


Kirkcaldy is located on Fife’s east coast. It's less than an hour’s journey from Dundee and Edinburgh by road or rail, making it a great location from which to explore the rest of Scotland.

The campus itself is opposite the town’s train station, only a short walk from the town centre.

The town

Though smaller than Dundee, Kirkcaldy has plenty to do. You'll find large parks, historic buildings, nearby beaches, and the waterfront esplanade. The town has a modern leisure centre complete with a swimming pool and several gyms. If you're a sports fan, you can also enjoy professional football, rugby, and ice hockey.

In the town centre you'll find a mix of established retailers, independent and artisan traders, restaurants and cafes. There's also an easily accessible retail park on the edge of town with many well-known stores.
