You're officially coming to study at UHI, what now?

To help you make the most of your student experience, we've pulled together some guides on various aspects of studying with us in Scotland, covering the important things you need to know about like what happens once you arrive in Scotland, about the culture in the UK, and information about banking and your health.

“The Highlands of Scotland has so much to offer people who enjoy the outdoors. It has the most stunning scenery and we get to go out and enjoy it on our practical days.

At UHI, each day is different, you’ll find yourself sat in the classroom on a Monday and on a Thursday you're out playing in the hills on your mountain bike.”


Your study experience is important - but so too is life outside of the classroom

Finding the right accommodation to suit you, making friends, and getting involved in other activities will help you settle quickly into the Scottish culture. Studying in another country is a big decision, and we are here to support you every step of the way.
