10 Year Anniversary Celebrations

UHI West Highland was created in 2010 when two small colleges merged to become a positive force for change in our communities.

In 2020 we celebrated our tenth anniversary as West Highland College UHI and looked back at the success stories of our students, alumni, staff and partners and looked forward to a bright future as we offer more opportunities to our students and more support to strengthen the businesses, partnerships and communities we serve.


Our story

On this, our ten year anniversary as a college and an academic partner of the University of the Highlands and Islands, we’re delighted to share our milestones and achievements with you.

Making our communities better places to live, work and study drives us forward. From our ten college centres to our partnerships with schools and businesses, we’re committed to creating opportunity, investment and growth across one of the most remote regions in Scotland.
