Organisation profile

At Perth College UHI we are committed to leading the way in high quality academic research - and achieving results that produce real benefits both locally and worldwide.

Over the last ten years we have made big investments into our research facilities, and have established three unique research centres and two specialist centres: Air Service Training and the Centre for Enterprise. The centres combine academic talents from a wide range of disciplines with a focus on developing a dynamic and thriving research agenda which addresses many frontline issues, such as environmental change, childhood and sustainable interpretation.
