The University of the Highlands and Islands has introduced a bursary to support care-experienced students to participate in graduation ceremonies.

The bursary, available from this summer, will provide assistance for costs such as gown hire, photography, travel and accommodation.

Research shows that care experienced students, those who spent time in care as a child, often experience financial difficulties during their studies as they are unable to rely on additional support from family.

Designed and delivered by professional musicians, educators and industry experts, this dynamic and highly innovative practical degree addresses the modern needs of the professional musician.

Students may also enter at HNC level and although delivered from Benbecula, we have students located all over Scotland.
