Organisation profile

Research and teaching go hand in hand and we are keen to demonstrate to students the breadth of our professional offering.  Not only this, but original research is an integral part of taught degrees with students expected to undertake their own projects as part of their qualifications.

Undertaking research is also an important part of enhancing our researchers’ continuing professional development and is an important part of our college work. Dr Andrew Jennings, of the university's Centre for Nordic Studies is based at Shetland College UHI, and college staff have been involved in archaeological landscape research.

Research into archaeological landscapes

Shetland has one of the best-preserved prehistoric landscapes in Britain.

In the North of mainland Shetland, at Islesburgh (near Mavis Grind) Dr Simon Clarke, Head of Heritage, has been investigating the relationship between the Neolithic tomb, settlement and enclosure, and the natural setting.

The Centre for Rural Creativity supports research and knowledge exchange in the creative industries in remote and rural areas, established in 2015 with the support of Shetland Islands Council, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Creative Scotland. Based in Shetland College UHI the Centre undertakes interdisciplinary research and acts as a focal point for the university’s teaching, knowledge exchange and engagement with the creative industries.
