Why our students love UHI

Denny, events management gradute

I started my student journey with UHI on HND Professional Cookery. It was the fact that world-renowned chefs, Andrew Fairlie and Tom Kitchin, had studied here that really attracted me to the course. My favourite thing about this university is the staff and lecturers. I was known by my name, rather than feeling I was just a number.

Denny graduated from our HND Professional Cookery before studying BA (Hons) Event Management at UHI Perth.

Casey, computing graduate

I knew I wanted to do a computing course but I wasn’t keen on moving to study. UHI was an option local to me with a range computing courses available to choose from. I like the teaching style I’ve received where we learn bit by bit as we work through assignments, I’ve found it much easier to remember and more manageable. Lecturers are understanding and helpful and genuinely have a passion for what they do.

Casey studied HNC Computing at UHI Shetland.
