An Cùrsa Adhartais

Sabhal Mòr Ostaig


Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)


An Cùrsa Adhartais is aimed at intermediate level learners whose goal is fluency in the language. It is a Distance Learning course which normally requires a minimum of two years to complete and is broadly equivalent to Sabhal Mòr Ostaig's An Cùrsa Comais. The main focus is on language skills, both speaking and writing, but a subject will be introduced in the second year of the course. Students can also choose to come to Sabhal Mòr Ostaig on one of the course's optional Weekend Schools to meet and speak Gaelic with fellow students.

The course is at Level 1 of UHI's Gaelic and Related Studies Degree program, and on successful completion of the course, students will be awarded a Certificate of Higher Education from the University of the Highlands and Islands Millennium Institute.

Entry Requirements

2 Highers at C or above preferably including Gaelic at B plus completion of a written assessment and oral interview.
