In early 2021, the boards of management at UHI North Highland, UHI Outer Hebrides and UHI West Highland commissioned a review into their long-term strategic future. A Partnership Board was formed in September 2021 to formally explore the option of merger. An initial consultation took place with staff, students, and the public in early 2022. Feedback from the initial consultation has supported the development of the full merger proposal and business case, published on 8 August 2022.

Our 10-week public consultation runs from 8 August to 14 October 2022 and is your opportunity to have your say on our merger proposal and business case. Your views are important to us – they will help refine the final business case for merger, which will be considered by the boards of each of the three colleges later this year.

If approved by the three boards, the business case will be submitted to the Scottish Government for consideration ahead of a proposed vesting date of August 2023 for the new college.

We welcome your views on the proposal and look forward to hearing from you.
