Fresher's Fair

Our Freshers' Fair takes place at the start of the academic year, and gives you a great chance to find out more about the social side of things, as well as meeting your fellow students, local employers and voluntary organisations, and of course picking up lots of freebies.

Freshers' events take place Monday to Friday,during the first week of term.


By enrolling one of our Higher Education Courses at West Highland College UHI you'll become a part of Scotland's newest university, the University of the Highlands and Islands.

On successful completion of your course you will be able to take part in our Graduation ceremony.  Graduation normally takes place in September of each year.
