Lews Castle College UHI launches its first Online Open Week from Monday-Thursday 23-26 November.

There will be a series of sessions where people can find out about a range of short courses starting in January in subjects such as health and social care, construction, professional cookery and digital skills – and many more.

The courses will be offered on a blended learning basis - a combination of safe on-campus attendance with flexible online learning, which LCC staff have over 20 years’ experience of delivering.

There will be online lectures, interactive discussions, live streamed events, online tours of facilities, the opportunity to speak to staff one-to-one and so much more. Whatever your interest, the open week provides an opportunity for you to take part and for the College to support you to find your future.

Events will include:

  • A live staff and student performance from the BA Applied Music course, followed by a live question and answer session
  • An online engineering lecture from lecturer and former Nasa employee Dr Chris Maclean, followed by a live question and answer session
  • A live cookery demonstration with James MacKenzie of Digby Chicks ahead of the launch of the new National Progression Award course in Professional Cookery in January
  • A live streamed chat between Dr Gareth David and students about our postgraduate online Digital Pedagogy course -the only online Digital Pedagogy course in the UK
  • An interactive live question and answer session with our Gaelic and Health lecturers about courses and potential careers in these sectors
