North Highland College UHI is a fantastic place to study and attracts students with many different interests. The surrounding area of wild, unspoiled Scottish scenery is the perfect place to kick back and enjoy the local area and great outdoors. Our campuses are within a few miles of the stunning landscapes of the North Coast 500 route. Many of our undergraduate and postgraduate courses take advantage of the unique environment, landscape and culture of our region.
Our Thurso campus is our main campus and offers over 100 courses ranging from beauty to environmental science. It is also home to the Environmental Research Institute, House of Morven, Engineering, Technology and Energy Centre, and Rural Studies Centre which is just a 15-mile drive from Thurso. Our campuses in Dornoch include our Burghfield House which specialises in hospitality and professional cookery training and Ross House campus, which is perfectly located next to the Royal Dornoch Golf Club, home to our golf degree students. Our Alness campuses, Tern House and Ballachraggan House offer a variety of courses in the creative industries and health, education and social care sectors. Study abroad students are taught alongside local and international students, and more information on course selection and application procedures can be found on our website.
Getting to the most northerly town in mainland Scotland is easier than you may think. Regular flights from Aberdeen and Edinburgh to the nearby town of Wick and daily trains and busses from Inverness connect Thurso to other urban Highland areas and beyond. The Dornoch and Alness campuses are a short distance from Inverness with regular bus, plane and train connections to the rest of the UK, Europe and beyond.
