In 2015, the college opened two new state of the art buildings - the main building in Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, and the Scottish School of Forestry in Balloch. These campuses provide ultra-modern learning facilities, as well as social and recreational spaces where you can relax with friends.
Including research, unique Highers clusters, online Psychology BSc, Forestry, Child & Youth Studies, Information Technology and Architectural Technology to name just a few.
I chose the university after looking at online recommendations for drama courses across Scotland and found it tended to have the best reviews. I very much enjoy how much we engage with our lecturers and enjoy the way our classes are taught. The college campus is full of helpful staff and has many great facilities for us despite being on the smaller scale.

Doing the course has made a huge impact on my life. I wanted to move forward with increasing management responsibility. It has helped my children better understand the importance of making time to study and the doors that further education can help open. Learning online at your own pace is a fantastic way to study, especially when combined with the support from a helpful and knowledgeable tutor staff. The practical application of your learning will result in your ability to lead and manage effectively.

The balance between outdoor learning and class lectures combined with the compulsory placement, in the second year, were my favourite aspects of the course; the experience you gain is priceless. I feel the placement year we do is why we end up being in employment straight after we graduate. Site visits are a major component of our studies which enhance our learning and understanding of the industry.
