It is our quest for knowledge that leads us to undertake research projects.

Research and teaching go hand in hand and we are keen to demonstrate to students the breadth of our professional offering.  Not only this, but original research is an integral part of taught degrees with students expected to undertake their own projects as part of their qualifications.

UHI students including several from Shetland recently took part in excavation of Iron Age farmstead at Birnie in Moray. As well as excavation and finds handling students learn how to record, using photography, drawing and surveying equipment.

Undertaking research is also an important part of enhancing our researchers’ continuing professional development and is an important part of our college work.
