The University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) was created so that higher education could be available locally throughout the Highlands and Islands.

It received university status in February 2011, evolving from the higher education institution, the UHI Millennium Institute.

The university has some of the best online learning technologies meaning you can study many of the courses from home or work, anywhere in the world.

You can study at one of the 13 campuses throughout the Highlands and Islands where you will find some of the most stunning locations in the UK.

Courses and Specialisms

The university has a range of provision from Higher National Certificate (HNC) to degree, postgraduate and research level study.

Subject areas include:

Students

The UHI has 8,618 higher education students, of which 64% are full time. There are 31,646 further education students, of which 86% are full time. Their learning is supported through a network of over 70 local learning centres throughout the mainland and island communities.
