Inverness College UHI is one of 13 of the 26 colleges in Scotland to have improved their success rates for full-time FE students in 2017-18. As a whole, full-time FE success rates across Scotland increased slightly and now stand at 66%.

In terms of part-time FE provision, success rates across the Scotland rose to 78% overall. Part-time FE success rates at Inverness also rose, to 87%.
