Tech ready


You'll be using different technologies as a student. Here's a useful summary of the different services you'll come across: LIS - Technologies at UHI

You may also need access to a device at home. You can check if you have a suitable device and home broadband network to ensure a stable, consistent experience here: LIS - Buying your own device (

However, if you don't, please don't let this worry you. Our learning resource centre at our main Inverness College UHI campus is open, providing access to computers. We also have a laptop lending service and support in place for students experiencing digital poverty. Our student support team can help you if you have any questions. 

As a student, you'll also have free access to Microsoft Office 365. You should also set up OneDrive for Students, which gives you 1TB of cloud storage for saving your documents. Guidance is available here.

If you experiencing any difficulties with ICT access, please contact our Servicedesk.

An Introduction to Brightspace, your Virtual Learning Environment

Learning is delivered in a variety of ways, depending on your course. It may be delivered completely face to face, blended (a combination of face to face and remote, timetabled classes) or online, where you study independently at a time of your choosing. 

We have been developing and delivering remote learning for over 20 years using a combination of video conferencing and inventive remote learning technologies. 

Remote and online learning takes place through our virtual learning environment, Brightspace. You will also find a link to Brightspace on MyDay. Your Personal Development Advisor (PDA) or Personal Academic Tutor (PAT) will introduce you to Brightspace when you start. Login using your user ID (student number) and password.

Brightspace provides access to course material, assignments, discussion boards and recorded sessions. It also includes information on support.
