The University of the Highlands and Islands

At the University of the Highlands and Islands you can study a diverse range of courses, many taking advantage of the unique environment, landscape and culture of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. With locations spread across the Highlands and Islands, our students can choose the university campus that suits. Students are also increasingly choosing to create their own campus by studying online, where and when it suits them, fitting their studies around work and life commitments.

Our online learning degrees are delivered entirely by computer and over the internet using the latest in online teaching and multimedia technology. Our way of teaching and learning has attracted international interest and recognition. Increasingly, this expertise is being used to engage with students based far beyond the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

The University’s specially developed Virtual Learning Environment allows students to access interactive online learning materials, submit assessments and communicate with their tutors. Our online support services will ensure that your online study experience is never interrupted; our 24 hour technical support service (available to online learning students) ensures we’ll always be there to support you.

At the University of the Highlands and Islands we see knowledge and the sharing of knowledge and education as something that we should be committed to making available to the widest audience possible. We see partnering with the OERu as a natural extension of the work we are already doing. An opportunity to share with a global audience affordable education opportunities.
