West Highland College UHI offers learning in 10 college centres across the West Highlands of Scotland. These include our largest campus in Fort William - the outdoor capital of the UK - surrounded by areas of outstanding natural beauty and in the shadow of Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest mountain.
you can access a variety of degree and postgraduate level courses from across the university.
The location of the college has to be one of the best things on offer. On your days off or even after lectures there are plenty of people that are wanting to head out on the hills to walk, bike, climb etc. with plenty of clubs available to keep you busy over the weekends and even monthly trips away. The best thing though…the Fort Bill World Cup mountain bike downhill track is right on your doorstep!
I was accepted at another university but really wanted to be able to blend my academic studies with practical experience. The BA Adventure Tourism Management course at Fort William offers just this, with the bonus of studying in a great location. Now in the last semester of 4th year I have gained skills, knowledge and experience that will open opportunities for the future. Alastair Buchanan, BA (Hons) Adventure Tourism Student
