UHI is an integrated university encompassing both further and higher education.

UHI is more than a college and more than a university. We are part of a new breed of tertiary institutions, the only one in Scotland and one of only a few in Europe.


We are a diverse and flexible partnership serving our communities and connected to their needs. Our greatest strength is the diversity and flexibility of our partnership and this empowers us to deliver more.

We offer flexible and supported learning from access level to PhD, which suits more people at more levels for more reasons.

We are proud of our unique place and deep roots in our communities and this makes our teaching and research more connected to their needs.

We have 36,000 students at the heart of our partnership and we are measured by their success.
