Great university, studied here over a number of years via distance learning. Amazing value for money, great staff and lecturers. Scotland is amazing and I would have loved the chance to attend the campus more. Studied at Inverness and the lecturers were amazing and nationally recognised SMEs. Very supportive as well

I studied at the centre for history with uhi and if you have any other choice in university take it. I would consider taking an access course in a more reputable college before accepting a place at uhi. The classes on history modules are glorified Skype calls (even before the pandemic) where the "lecturer" will spend 20 minutes lecturing before asking open questions for the students to fumble their way through to fill time. It doesn't help that the assigned readings range from the overly simplistic to incomprehensible babble which leave you understanding less about the modules themes than if you just skip them. The staff are difficult to get hold of and often do the bare minimum amount of feedback which is a slight problem when you write a dissertation. During my last year at uhi, I was only able to have 3 half an hour meetings with my dissertation "supervisor" and the feedback was so unhelpful that I might as well have asked a bowl of spaghetti as it would have been just as useful.

I study at the Inverness campus, and so far, without a shadow of a doubt, this is the worst institution I've ever had the misfortune of studying in. I've had classes changed "on my behalf" without consultation or even being informed of this until I asked about an anomaly on my timetable (which I also had to chase staff up for to even get an idea of when I was due to be in classes!!!) For one class, despite being almost 5 months into the academic year, I am still yet to receive a lecture. Administrative staff are rude, and if you DARE think about highlighting an issue expect to be treated with disdain and dismissed. It is a crying shame because the lecturers who actually bother to show up try exceptionally hard and are very good at their jobs. There is a severe organisational deficit at the UHI; at the Inverness campus at least. I would advise anybody thinking of studying here to seriously reconsider their options and only accept a place if you find yourself with no other option...

I’m going to the Perth college campus to study HNC Music. Perth for me is a decent size city of 50,000 people and there are plenty of shops and activities to do. Met loads of good people, although not enough international students, but a nice student body. I chose this course because it is a vocational approach to your 1st year in university and covers all the modules I need to work in the music industry.

The university doesn’t have enough activities to do, not enough support and not fun enough.

Very supportive staff especially in the history department who provide fascinating topics to study, especially for Scottish history and highland history, among with other topics. Library is very good and it's easy to get books from other campuses. Lectures are recorded as well.

(Perth College) has potential to be good in 10-15 years, but incompetent and rude admin staff alongside mediocre facilities, no student union, very few societies (most of which not worth the time) as well as poorly managed student halls (an outside door couldn't be shut, giving open access to the flat, which was never fixed despite several complaints) are just some issues which plague the university.

Good uni but no facility for outdoor sports which is a shame as current students are unable to make use of this environment and therefore are unable to have full student experience based on their course.
