UHI is an integrated university, encompassing both further and higher education.
We are more than a college and more than a university: we are part of a new breed of tertiary institutions, the only one in Scotland and one of only a few in Europe.
Our greatest strength is the diversity and flexibility of our partnership, empowering us to deliver more to our communities.
We are proud of our deep roots and our unique place in our communities and are committed to connecting our teaching and research to their needs.
We offer flexible and supported learning from access level to PhD, which suits more people at more levels for more reasons.
There are 31,000 students at the heart of our partnership, and we are measured by their success.
Study where you want, when you want
University should be available to you no matter what your circumstances are, which is why we offer different, flexible ways of studying, so you can fit your learning around your lifestyle.
At UHI you can study part time or full time, from a distance, online, at one of our local learning centres, or at one of our main campuses – the choice is yours.
We use technology in an innovative way to ensure maximum flexibility in our courses and allow you to fit your studies around your personal and professional commitments.
We are 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. Widening participation focuses on you: we want to encourage your higher education aspirations by providing all the support you need to make your transition and progression as successful as possible.
