Applied Health and Life Sciences (SWAP)

UHI Perth


Main Campus, Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)


This innovative new course has been developed in response to the increased demand for adults looking for a more flexible method of learning and for those who may not be able to come to a college campus for study. This programme is part of the Scottish Wider Access Programme (SWAP) for adults who have been out of full-time education for a while.

Students from all over Scotland will be able to access this learning. The study will be on-line with 2/3 visits on campus during the year, for practical lab work and assessments.

This course is a SWAP (Scottish Wider Access Programme) which supports adults, ordinarily resident in Scotland to return to education after a gap.
