Applicants have until the Saturday 6 March to apply to be part of a new graduate development programme, developed by the University of the Highlands and Islands and artist-run Circus Artspace.

The initiative is open to all visual art graduates based in the Highlands and Islands as well as University of the Highlands and Islands alumni in Moray and Perthshire. 

Lews Castle College hosts a live ceilidh every Thursday for musicians, singers, writers or anyone missing live performance.

So far, they have welcomed Robert Robertson from Tide Lines, Anna Massie from Blazin Fiddles, legendary accordion player John Carmichael and more! 

Nominations are now OPEN for the 2021 LCC UHI HISA Student Elections.

Our students can stand to be elected and work part-time to improve the lives of students starting in July 2021.

Find out more about how you can get involved at 

  • HISA is an organisation led by students, for students.  Every year, students elect from amongst themselves the new leadership team of HISA.  This is a great opportunity for you to represent your fellow students and change the student experience for the better.
  • HISA is the students’ association that exists to represent all students in the Highlands and Islands – whatever you study, wherever you study.  There are a range of different roles available where you can leave a legacy for students in your region and where you learn.
  • HISA elected officers represent the voice of students. They sit on the highest decision-making bodies of UHI and its academic partners, meet with local and national politicians, and campaign for change. They do all this to change people’s lives.
  • To become a HISA officer, you don’t need to submit a CV, attend an interview or have prior experience.  To become an elected HISA officer, all you need is a vision of how being a student can be better, and to secure the support of your fellow students in an election.
