Student life

We want you to get the most out of your time with us at Shetland College UHI. Student Life isn't just about classes after all.

Students in cafe

In Briggistanes, our cafe and social area, there's a relaxed atmosphere which allows space for students to interact and socialise between classes.  Trish, Ann & Lee will have a range of food available to you every day from 8.30 till 1.30.

As well as purchasing food in the cafe you'll also find a mircrowave and kettle for your own food as well as vending machines.

There are various ways that you can get involved with activities. These include vocational work placements, volunteering opportunities and in supporting fellow students in making sure the student voice is heard.  A really important part of that is HISA (Highlands and Islands Student Association). HISA is there to represent all students (FE & HE) and you can get involved in clubs, societies and events for students as well as much more.

Find out more about how to get involved by emailing our Officer for HISA in Shetland.  Watch this space for updates as well as on the MyDay portal.

We will send out regular student bulletins with news, competition, social activities and opportunities.  These will be sent from sctalkbox and will be delivered to your student email account.
