Our students can choose from a wide range of subjects, from the traditional to the very special.

We offer academic opportunities at every level…from English language learning programmes to undergraduate courses to postgraduate degrees and so much more.

We are based in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. With a number of campuses spread across our region, we give you the chance to experience and be inspired by our unique landscape and stunning study locations. Each of our campuses is different and their locations have a special characteristic, from the rich cultural life of the islands, to the bright city lights of Inverness and Perth. Some courses are only available in one location, however for others you may have a choice of campuses. You could also choose to create your own campus by studying one of our fully online courses, when and where it suits you.

If you would like to study in an area of outstanding natural beauty, friendly communities, and cities buzzing with social life and activities, then the Highlands and Islands of Scotland should be your first choice.
