We offer a diverse range of courses, many taking advantage of our region's unique environment, landscape and culture.

Teaching on the degree programme varies between face-to-face teaching, video-based teaching, self-directed study, and clinical skills sessions with patients to learn and develop our practical skills so there really is something to suit everyone’s learning needs. We all have our own personal academic tutors, who we can contact about any troubles we might be having, and we also have regular one-to-one meetings with them. All our tutors are there for support and are only an email away whenever we need them. Lauren Connolly, BSc Oral Health Science student

I loved the fact that you could study at a campus, and from home, and at the same time be networked with the university's thirteen campuses across the beautiful Highlands and Islands. This degree combines three of my main interests: Scotland, history and politics, and has taught me invaluable academic skills. I have continued with the university by progressing onto the MLitt British Studies. Silja Roethinger, BA (Hons) Scottish History and Politics graduate
