University of the Highlands and Islands

The University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) (Scottish Gaelic: Oilthigh na Gàidhealtachd agus nan Eilean) is an integrated, tertiary institution encompassing both further and higher education. It is composed of 12 colleges and research institutions spread around the Highlands and Islands, Moray and Perthshire regions of Scotland. UHI offers further education, undergraduate, postgraduate and research programmes which can be studied at a range of locations across the area and online. It has 31,000 students, including 19,779 further education students and 11,210 higher education students. [4]

While UHI is Scotland's newest university,[5] many of its 12 colleges and research institutions have longer histories, the earliest having been founded in the 19th Century. The UHI network has had a unique structure and the way that it has evolved as a multi-campus institution has been constrained by a legislative framework that deals with further and higher education separately.[6] Technology has played an important part in connecting the partner institutions.[7]

In April 2001, it became known as the UHI Millennium Institute, following the Scottish Parliament awarding Higher Education Institute status. By 2004 full-time deans had been appointed to its three faculties, with experienced figures having been attracted from other academic bodies.[8]

University degrees were authenticated by the Open University Validation Service, the University of Strathclyde and the University of Aberdeen until 2008 when the UHI was given taught degree awarding powers (tDAP) by the Privy Council[9][10] under recommendation from the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA);[11] Higher National Certificate and Higher National Diploma courses are awarded by the Scottish Qualifications Authority.

University status was awarded by the Privy Council in February 2011, and UHI became the University of the Highlands and Islands.[12][13]

Organisation and administration


The Princess Royal was officially installed as Chancellor in June 2012.[14]

Clive Mulholland became Principal and Vice-Chancellor in June 2014,[15] after his appointment to this post was announced in February 2014.[16]

Professor Todd Walker became Principal and Vice-Chancellor in 2021. [17]

Anton Edwards, a marine physicist, took over as Rector in June 2014.[18]

The University's coat of arms is designed to reflect important aspects of UHI. A compass rose with a fleur-de-lys indicating north denotes University's northernly location and two open books symbolise learning, the 13 hazel leaves represent UHI's partners, and a tree associated with wisdom in Celtic and Norse tradition.[19]

UHI has an annual income of £137 million.[20]

UHI is organised into two faculties, the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Business, and the Faculty of Science, Health and Engineering.[21]

UHI Court


The Court consists of up to 20 members including graduates, academic and support personnel, university sponsor representatives and a majority of independent members. From the independent members the party elects its President and Vice-Chair. The Court assigns many of its academic responsibilities to the academic board.[22]

Academic Council


The Academic Council is the main Higher Education disciplinary authority in UHI. Specific tasks are assigned to a number of committees;[23][24]

  • Quality assurance and enhancement committee
  • Academic titles review board
  • Comataidh Ghàidhlig
  • External partnerships steering committee
  • Research committee
  • Research degrees committee
  • Research ethics committee



The Foundation creates a link between UHI and its communities and contains a maximum of 120 members. In addition to the Rector, Principal and Vice-Chancellor, President of the Student Association and Chair of the Court, the Foundation also includes members from academic partners, employees, students, industry, alumni, external organisations and individuals.[25]

Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Business


The Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Business has three subject networks;[21]

  • Business, management and leisure
  • Creative and cultural industries
  • Humanities, education and Gaelic

In the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Business, courses such as honours programmes in Gaelic,[26] Theological Studies,[27] and Scottish History,[28] all reflect the distinctive nature of the region, its past, present and future. The Centre for History is based in Dornoch and teaches a range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees via videoconference to students around the UHI network and worldwide.[29] The faculty also offers an interdisciplinary course in Scottish Cultural Studies,[30] which received the 2005 Times Higher Education Supplement Award for Most Imaginative Use of Distance Learning.[31] Other postgraduate masters programmes cover the culture, literature and history of the Highlands and Islands, Material Culture and Gàidhealtachd History, Orkney & Shetland Studies, and Viking Studies. The business school offers distinctive programmes such as Scotland's only degree in Golf Management,.[32] The School of Adventure Studies delivers courses in Adventure Tourism Management, Adventure Performance & Coaching, Adventure Education & Marine Coastal Tourism using Lochaber, the UK's Outdoor Capital as a living research laboratory.[33]

From August 2013 UHI has benefited from allocation of student teacher places,[34] allowing postgraduate diploma in education (PGDE) to be offered, and the success of this has led to the number of places being increased.[35]

Faculty of Science, Health and Engineering


The Faculty of Science, Health and Engineering has three subject networks;[21]

  • Engineering and the built environment
  • Applied life studies
  • Science, technology and the environment

The Faculty of Science, Health and Engineering has research in Renewables, Marine Science, Digital Health, Sustainable Rural Development and Environmental Issues. A fully online honours degree programme is available across the UK from this faculty. The BSc (Hons) Sustainable Development[36] is an example of a multi-disciplinary programme from this Faculty. The programme has professional accreditation from the Institute of Economic Development.[37] The Faculty also offers postgraduate studies, including an MSc in Sustainable Rural Development.[38] This Masters programme also has professional accreditation from the Institute of Economic Development.[citation needed]

The Energy and Technology subject area offers a range of academic programs up to, and including Masters level, together with various subjects taught at HNC/HND level.

UHI has links with the new Centre for Health Sciences located behind Raigmore Hospital. This is being funded by Highlands and Islands Enterprise, the Scottish Government and Johnson and Johnson. UHI purchased the Centre for Health Science in Inverness from Highlands and Islands Enterprise in a £9.83m deal.[39] The building includes a research centre.[40] Phase I of this opened in early 2007, phase II and phase III were opened in 2009. The University of Stirling has moved its nursing and midwifery operations from Raigmore Hospital to the CfHS. A BSc Oral Health Science was set up in 2008, and was based on two campuses, the Centre for Health Sciences and Dumfries Dental Centre. In 2011 a third campus was added in Stornoway. In September 2016 the Nursing and Midwifery Council approved the transfer of the pre-registration nurse BSc nursing programmes in Inverness and Stornoway to be provided by UHI.[41]

In August 2015, UHI Inverness, one of the main collaborators at UHI, opened at the Inverness Campus. The £50m 18,500 sqm facility offers further and higher education courses including Life Sciences education and research.[42]

The £6.5 million Alexander Graham Bell Centre for Digital Health is a Moray College UHI centre for excellence in digital health and Life Science for the North of Scotland and beyond, providing facilities for, and expertise in, digital health and life science research and education. The centre was officially opened by the Princess Royal in June 2014.[43] UHI received a £9 million grant from the UK Government for this project.[44]

The new life sciences innovation centre is a collaborative project between UHI and Highlands and Islands Enterprise. The total size of the building is projected to be 2700m². The new innovation centre aims to promote the development of education and research. The new centre will also collaborate with the proposed Elective Care Centre also planned for Inverness Campus.[45]

Constituent institutions and campuses


UHI has 12 individual colleges and each college/research centre has its own campus in different locations. As colleges offer different programmes, not all courses are available at every campus. Some campuses such as SAMS have tiny student populations all studying similar courses, whereas other campuseses such as Inverness College teach diverse disciplines.

Some UHI colleges have student accommodation on their campuses while others do not. Argyll College does not have a single campus; staffed learning centres are located in Oban, Lochgilphead, Helensburgh, Campbeltown, Islay, Dunoon, Rothesay and Arran. Lews Castle College campus is set in 600 acres of parkland beside the principal harbour town of Stornoway. North Highland College UHI has four campuses spread throughout the north of Scotland. There are two campuses in Caithness; main campus in Thurso and one in Wick. Moray College UHI has its main campus in the ancient cathedral town of Elgin. The Elgin campus is home to Scotland's fifth art school and the only one located in a non-urban environment. West Highland College is located in Fort William. Orkney College UHI is principally based in Kirkwall in the Orkney Islands with a second campus in Stromness and learning centres based on the smaller islands. UHI Perth is situated in the city of Perth on the southern edge of the Highlands of Scotland. The Scottish Association for Marine Science UHI (SAMS UHI) is located on Dunstaffnage bay on the west coast of Scotland, three miles from the seaside town of Oban. Sabhal Mòr Ostaig UHI is situated close to the sea on the southern peninsula of Sleat on the Isle of Skye. Shetland College and NAFC Marine Centre mergered in August 2021 to become Shetland UHI, with college bases in Lerwick and in the historic village of Scalloway. [46]
