Student support

We know studying can be tough and sometimes you are not sure where to turn. Well, we have a number of dedicated support staff on hand to provide help and advice throughout your journey with us.

From course information to student funding advice and general support, our Guidance Team are here for you and provide a drop-in service.

If you would like support with taking the step from school to college, then we can help with this too. We have a dedicated Transitions Coordinator to help students who are care leavers and carers at the college - please see the info pages on the left menu for more details or e-mail: transition.ic@uhi.ac.uk

You may need additional support with your studies if you are Dyslexic, have Asperger’s, Autism or a learning difficulty which sometimes challenges your studies. Our trained teams are proficient in dealing with a wide variety of needs and are happy to discuss these with you at any point. It is always best to tell us in advance of you starting your course with us so we can provide the best level of care.

Our wellbeing officer and counselling officer can also provide a more dedicated 1-2-1 service for problems you might be facing with family life, financial difficulty, stress and anxiety.

Support is also available for BSL users and you can read the UHI BSL plan by following this link https://www.uhi.ac.uk/en/students/support/british-sign-language-plan/
