Taught Postgraduate

Interested in studying at masters-level on themes such as Highlands and Islands, Scottish, British, or coastal and maritime history, and from the comfort of your own home?

We have a range of online options available, taught locally from the Highlands and available from anywhere on earth. These are:

The latter two programmes are interdisciplinary Masters', with the MLitt British Studies bringing together four key disciplines from across the humanities - History, Literature, Philosophy and Archaeology.

By enrolling with us - whether on an individual short course (module) or a programme - you will join a cohort that has included, to date, students living locally, nationally, across the UK and Europe, and in countries such as Romania, Kenya, Canada and Australia.

I decided later in life to finally study what I was passionate about, so I started the MLitt course not really knowing where it might take me. I can now say it has completely transformed my life, resulting in professional opportunities both at home and abroad that I never thought possible. My work in museums, heritage, tourism, and consulting, has been enhanced tremendously and my perspective on what it means to be a global Scot has been forever changed. Studying with students from around the world in the supportive academic community fostered by the UHI Centre for History faculty and staff has provided a rich learning environment and has given me a network I will now have for life. The MLitt is a brilliant course and an excellent experience that I will never forget.
