Online teaching and support


Our online learning courses let you learn in your own time, where you want and when you choose, with regular support from your tutor and from the University's online student community.

As an online learning student with UHI you’ll be able to meet with other students and your tutors via online discussion sessions, workshops and tutorials. Working with other online students will not only support your online learning, it will enhance your knowledge of the course materials and is a great way to meet new people!

Online Learning Support

Throughout your online learning degree a course tutor will guide and advise you through your coursework materials, lead group discussion and tutorial exercises as well as provide comprehensive feedback on all of your assignments. Your tutor will always be available when you need them (by phone or by email) to provide online learning support.

Our specially developed Virtual Learning Environment allows students to access interactive online learning materials, submit assessments and communicate with their tutors through online discussion boards and live chat. UHI’s online support services will ensure that your online study experience is never interrupted; our 24 hour technical support service (available to online learning students) ensures that no matter where you are in the world, day or night, we’ll be there to support you!
