On a Higher plane

Highland pupils can now take Higher psychology online.

Inverness College, part of the fledgling University of the Highlands and Islands, has launched the first "blended learning" Higher psychology course in the north. It aims to make the subject accessible to pupils in rural areas through a combination of online learning, bolstered by monthly face-to-face seminars in the schools themselves or at the college.

Eight schools have confirmed their participation, including Kinlochbervie High and Golspie High, and there will be opportunities for their pupils to continue studying psychology without leaving the Highlands. In August 2010, Inverness College UHI will launch a full-time BSc degree in psychology. Applications will be taken in the new year.
