We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
This Masters in the History of the Highlands and Islands is the first ever taught postgraduate course to focus on the complex, colourful and often conflict-driven history of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, from medieval times to the 20th century.
It is a truly interactive course that involves extensive use of primary source material including oral history testimony, archives, newspapers and digitised materials.
You will study a range of subjects that will not only spark your interest and emotions, but may also cause you to begin to question and perhaps even abandon certain stereotypes and cherished myths.
• Loans for tuition fees are available from the Students Award Agency for Scotland (SAAS) for eligible Scotland domiciled and EU students, and loans for living costs

“I've really enjoyed the MLitt course. The online/distance teaching works a treat, and the advent of the internet has made such a difference. Apart from actual face to face contact through video-conference - yes, oral presentations are possible from 10,000 miles away - all the lecturers are really quick and helpful in answering email questions, and the resources that are available online are fascinating.” [Graham Hannaford, current taught postgraduate student, UHI Centre for History]
