UHI West Highland graduates 2022 group shot

It's time to celebrate your achievements whatever your course or level you've completed.

Our Ceremony will take place on Friday October 6, 2023 in Fort William.

Our Graduation & Celebration of Success and Achievement Ceremony is the highlight of our academic calendar and is your chance to celebrate in the presence of friends and family. It’s also a special day for our staff, who are incredibly proud of you.

The celebration events are open to students who are being awarded and those who will be awarded later because of delays caused by current industrial action. If you are one of these students, you will  shortly receive communications inviting you to register to receive your award certificate AND select the partner ceremony you wish to attend. Or you can use this link register to attend the ceremony.

Please note that each student’s name and course title will be included in programmes in print and online and may be sent to the local and national media lists for coverage and publication, both in print and online. If you object to the publication of your personal data in this way, please let us know by emailing info.whc@uhi.ac.uk.

Higher Education students can check and update their details on their Student Hub Log in to the portal (uhi.ac.uk)

Further Education Students can send any updates to registry.whc@uhi.ac.uk
