Starting a New Group


Online Application Form


In West Highland, student groups make use of dramatic scenery and superb outdoor opportunities with sporting clubs like Snowsports and Mountainbiking.

Campuses like Moray and Perth have art and music clubs. Inverness College's School of Forestry has a vibrant academic society. Our unique geographical context provides students with opportunities to connect with others outside of their own college in our Regional clubs like UHI Gaming.

Clubs and Societies are a chance for students to take part in sports and hobbies, reduce feelings of isolation, and collaborate with their peers.

If you don't find a club or society that meets your interests on this website, you can apply to start a new group.

What are the benefits of becoming a Club or Society?
