Whether you want to spend a year improving your Gaelic language skills or enrol on a four-year programme, Sabhal Mòr Ostaig offers the knowledge and experience to help you achieve your goals.

Our degree courses are the only degrees in the world taught entirely through the medium of Gaelic. Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, the National Centre for Gaelic and Culture, is an academic partner of the University of the Highlands and Islands, and we are the lead partner for the Gaelic and Related Studies Degree Scheme.

The courses place an emphasis on achieving fluency in Gaelic in Years 1 and 2, and students will be encouraged to immerse themselves in the language on a daily basis. Thereafter, you can specialise in modules leading to degrees in Gaelic Language and Culture, Gaelic and Development, Gaelic and Education and Gaelic and Traditional Music. For anyone interested in working in the media, please view our hugely successful DipHE in Gaelic Media.

Our CertHE courses – An Cùrsa Comais and Gaelic and Communication – can act as the first year of a degree course, or as standalone one-year immersion courses to improve your language skills.
