Student Case Study

"I had always wanted to study with UHI after completing my Higher Business qualification through the school-link in my 5th year at high school. I went straight into my HNC Business instead of continuing on to do a 6th year after realising the great opportunities on my doorstep. This was the right course for me as I was unsure which area of work I wanted my career to take me, and the course offers several different routes within the business world – eg. Marketing, HR, Finance. The flexibility of the course (mainly VC’s) also allowed me to study full time whilst working part-time." Erin Shearsmith
