Advice Services

If you are a student or a graduate (within two years) from the University of the Highlands and Islands you can access our advice and guidance services. You can either:

  • Submit a question  through our secure, confidential e-guidance service.
  • E-mail us to request an appointment over the telephone, videoconference or skype. Appointments normally last between half an hour and an hour and give you an opportunity to explore your ideas in more depth.

All services are delivered in line with our student and graduate entitlement statement.

If you are not a student or recent graduate from the university you may be able to access support through Skills Development Scotland.

What kind of help can we give?

  • Information about career paths and training options
  • Information on postgraduate study
  • An opportunity to talk through your ideas to develop a plan for your next steps
  • CV or application form feedback
  • Support with applications for further study (including UCAS and other applications)
  • Support with interviews, including running mock interview (over videoconference or telephone)
