Section 2 - About your public authority

West Highland College UHI is a provider of vocational training and education. With no single, central campus, our college learning centres are spread throughout the West Highlands of Scotland, from Ullapool in the north to Kinlochleven further south, which serve the needs of local and remote communities.

The College is a partner in the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI), through which it offers a range of degree programmes.  UHI achieved title in February 2011. Prior to that, in April 2001, the Scottish Executive granted UHI Millennium Institute the status of Higher Education Institution. This was achieved after a decade of dedicated hard work by the people involved with the University of the Highlands and Islands Project. However, for centuries the people of the Highlands and Islands have aspired to create a university and thus UHI has an extensive and intriguing history which dates back to the 14th century.

Further information about your public authority is available from the About Us section of the website.
