            Huge Campus & Excellent Support for Mature Students

            The UHI has learning centers throughout Northern Scotland which meant I could pursue a science degree without the hassle of relocating or part time learning, and the additional time this would have added to the course. I would also say that the university is very welcoming to mature students and provides all the support necessary for someone returning to education in their later years.
