Our door is always open

Places are still available for courses starting this September!

Although applications are now considered on a first-come, first-served basis, we still have places available. Applications are now through clearing

You can choose from an extensive range of subjects, including specialist courses in incredible locations: study golf in Dornoch; adventure studies in Fort William; marine science in Oban; or Gaelic on the Isle of Skye or the Outer Hebrides!

We put students at the centre of what we do. Students regularly give us great feedback on our teaching, flexibility and small class sizes. Our support services are with you every step of the way, from application to graduation. At UHI you will always be a name, not just a number.
