Courses

These four-week and six-week online courses allow you to engage deeply with materials that come from and reflect the indigenous Gaelic culture of the Scottish Highlands. Study this obscured and fascinating legacy with fellow participants under the guidance of a pioneering scholar of Scottish Studies, Dr. Michael Newton.

Details about how the courses are designed and how they work are on this webpage. There is a cap of 20 students (first in the queue) for all courses.
