Postgraduate study

At the University of the Highlands and Islands you can study one of a growing number of taught postgraduate courses in some very specialist areas reflective of the unique environment, culture and heritage of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

You don’t, however, need to be based in the Highlands and Islands to study our postgraduate courses; many are available to study part time and online from a distance, so that you can fit your postgraduate studies into your lifestyle.

We also have a support hub for our research students, whether you're looking for policies or just some friendly advice, feel free to contact the Graduate School team.
