UHI Futures - Your Future, Your Services


UHI Futures

Your Career and Employability Centre

Over the course of your lives you will make frequent career decisions. Your career journey, alongside many other areas of your life, will be subject to constant change and the influences of unplanned events and unexpected opportunities.

The UHI Futures Team encourage you to see career decisions not as ‘problems to be solved’, but as amazing opportunities to be curious, look creatively at possibilities and consider what opportunities exist across the Highlands and Islands and beyond.

As a student UHI you have access to Handshake our exciting new careers platform, available for you to use throughout your time with us and beyond. Handshake enables students to book career appointments, attend events, make real-time connections with employers and access online resources.

As an employer we offer you the opportunity to advertise your opportunities to students and graduates and to influence the development of the curriculum. You can also build meaningful relationships with our students and graduates via UHI Handshake
