The St. James Research Centre provides training for diverse and energetic cohorts of students and professionals each year out of our training centre in Falkirk. The centre is located a short walking distance away from shopping, groceries, gyms, a movie theatre, and a train station with easy access to Edinburgh and Glasgow.

City Life

St. James Research Centre is conveniently located in the central belt of Scotland, less than a 30 minute train ride to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling. Falkirk itself is full of character, local restaurants, well known attractions and tourist sites in Scotland. With Edinburgh being a UNESCO world heritage site and Glasgow a major hub for shopping and restaurants in the UK, what's not to love?

Campus Life

St. James Research Centre is built out of a transformed church built in the late 1,800s to be a space for learning and collaboration. We offer on-campus accommodation and our centre is located a 10 minute walk to a major rail station going east, west and north for easy access to the rest of Scotland. 


Our mission is to equip future leaders and to offer them the experience, beyond the classroom. Scotland offers a perfect setting for just that. Not only rich in history and culture, Scotland’s wide landscape and friendly attitude, allows for students and tourists alike to find new opportunities that bring lasting memories. Enjoy a semester that has a lasting impact beyond a few months.
