If you have a learning difficulty, disability, or a significant health or mental health issue, we encourage you to book a meeting with our education support advisers to discuss your support options ahead of starting your studies.

If you've had support at school or college before and you want this to continue, you'll need to let us know. You may also be exploring support for the first time and have lots of questions about what's on offer.

You can find out more here and request a meeting via the team's contact us form.

How to access your timetable

Once in Celcat Calendar:

  • Select 'group' or 'modules' in type to begin your search. 'Group' refers to a course timetable - you should search by course timetable if you are studying at further education level (SCQF level 1 to 6) OR at HNC or HND level (SCQF level 7 to 8). Search using 'modules' when looking for modules on networked degree programmes delivered across multiple partners.
  • Enter search text e.g. 'Sport Studies' in the 'resource' field to find timetables. You can check your course code on your induction email.
  • Remember to scroll forward the calendar to September.
  • Remote classes are identified on timetables. All other classes will take place face to face on campus. 
  • If you have any questions, or are having difficulties identifying your course timetable, please email student.support.ic@uhi.ac.uk for help.

Guidance on using CELCAT Calendar

Please note, these timetables are subject to change before the start/and during the academic year, however, every attempt will be made to minimise alterations.

Timetables include classes or sessions that you must attend - either face to face on campus or remotely, depending on your course. Your timetable may include periods of self-directed learning that you are expected to carry out in your own time. Your programme team will provide you with further guidance on what is expected of you beyond what is timetabled.
