Distance Learning

No matter where in the world you live you can learn Gaelic with us.  The distance learning courses offered by Sabhal Mòr Ostaig are designed to enable students to become fluent in the language and to progress to further study through the medium of Gaelic if desired.

If you have little or no previous knowledge of learning Gaelic we would recommend you begin with our award winning access to Gaelic course, An Cùrsa Inntrigidh.  If you do have some prior knowledge of Gaelic or if you are an experienced learner, you might wish to join the accelerated track of the course or enrol on An Cùrsa Adhartais, the next step towards fluency. Both these courses place an emphasis on speaking and listening skills and are about giving you the confidence to use Gaelic in everyday situations.

Once you have completed An Cùrsa Adhartais you may wish to undertake further study through the medium of the language and progress to the second year of the College's degree programme where you can study modules on Gaelic poetry, folklore and the modern short story.

The College also provides professional development courses for teachers, through the Streap programme, and an opportunity for Gaelic speakers to improve their writing skills through the online course, Sgilean Sgrìobhaidh.
A unique feature of all of our courses is the support you will receive from tutors and staff at the College and the opportunity you will have to connect with other students and learners the world over.
