Part-time, online and flexible learning

You should be able to study at university no matter what your circumstances are, which is why we offer you different, flexible ways of studying, so that you can fit your learning into your lifestyle.

At the University of the Highlands and Islands you can study part time or full time, from a distance, online, at one of our local learning centres, or come into one of our main campuses – the choice is yours.

We use technology in an innovative way to ensure maximum flexibility in our courses to allow you to fit your studies around your personal and professional commitments.

The majority of our courses are available to study on a part-time basis, and you can even study on a module-by-module basis and build up your qualifications over time.

Many courses are available to study online from your home or place of work – or anywhere with an internet connection!

The University of the Highlands and Islands is committed to widening access to and participation in higher education across our region. We aim to ensure that our curriculum offers flexible entry and progression routes, and that courses are available as widely as possible across the UHI network. Widening participation focuses on the individual and is about encouraging people into higher education and providing all the support they need to make their transition and progression as successful as possible.
