Mareel is the UK's most northerly music, cinema and creative industries centre. Sited right on the edge of the North Sea on the historic Hay’s Dock quayside in Lerwick beside the Shetland Museum and Archives, Mareel offers a stunning setting for performance, production, studying or just relaxing with a coffee enjoying the view and watching the seals and seabirds bobbing just outside the windows.

Courses can be studied full or part time, and degree courses utilise several flexible study methods.
