About us


UHI Argyll is proud to be an academic partner of Scotland's new university, the University of the Highlands and Islands. We provide a range of courses over a wide range of subjects and deliver these online and at local centres in Argyll.


Since our first learning centres opened in 2000, UHI Argyll has grown rapidly, now fulfilling the needs of more than 1600 students across a network of 9 learning centres throughout Argyll and Bute, from Helensburgh in the east to Islay and Mull in the west.

We are one of the 12 partner institutions of the University of the Highlands and Islands, and we are Argyll's largest provider of further and higher education. We work closely with the region's schools, giving pupils access to college courses as an integral part of their school curriculum. We also provide a range of certified training and professional development opportunities for local businesses.

We offer high quality innovative educational opportunities, working closely with local employers to support the Argyll economy and enhancing the quality of life for the communities we serve.

We're delighted that you are considering studying with us and you can be sure of a warm welcome in whichever centre you choose to study. Our students come from all walks of life and have a wide range of talents and abilities and ages. Wherever you are on your learning journey, we are here to support you.

Our goal is to help you to learn as much as you can, achieve the most that you can and advance to an exciting career in your chosen field.
