Short Courses



It is with huge disappointment that the College has come to the difficult decision to cancel the Easter Short Courses. The College will cease all face-to-face teaching as of 5pm Friday 20th March and it would be sensible for Short Courses to follow suit.   We feel that this is the most sensible course of action to take in order to help safeguard our college staff, students, visitors and the wider community, given the fast-changing and unpredictable public health situation we find ourselves in.

Please note we will be unable to answer phone calls during this time, however, we will still respond to emails.

At the moment we hope to run our summer programme as normal, though this may change nearer the time.



Welcome to SMO Short Courses

Looking to try something new this year? Do you enjoy learning, meeting new people and developing new skills?

Here at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, the Gaelic language and its culture lies at the very heart of the College, which is why each year, people of all backgrounds from all over the world come to us for instruction in Gaelic, song, fiddle, accordion, photography and a range of other specialised and creative subjects offered by a talented team of tutors.  You will find a warm and lively atmosphere around campus whilst being immersed in not only the Gaelic culture but cultures from across the world too.
