What the school says...
Sabhal Mòr Ostaig is the National Centre for Gaelic Language and Culture. Based in Sleat, Isle of Skye, and is the only centre of Higher and Further Education in the world that provides its learning programmes entirely through the medium of Gaelic in an immersed, language-rich environment.
We offer a range of learning opportunities, both on campus and via distance-learning, for anyone with an interest in Gaelic.
Sabhal Mòr Ostaig is a modern, innovative college and has excellent learning resources on-campus including an exceptional library collection, broadcast and recording facilities, residential student accommodation and a Gaelic-medium childcare facility.
Our activities are greatly enhanced by co-operative links within the wider Gaelic community and the College is home to a number of creative and cultural projects such as Tobar an Dualchais, Faclair na Gàidhlig and the multimedia and design company Cànan.
Founded in 1973 in the old farm steadings at Ostaig, Sabhal Mòr Ostaig’s mission is to contribute to the revitalisation of the Gaelic language and culture.
Celebrating our 50th anniversary in 2023, we were established before the first Gaelic-medium ‘primary units’ in schools throughout Scotland. Today, Sabhal Mòr Ostaig is the biggest employer of Scottish Gaelic speakers in the world.
The College also plays a leading role in the promotion of the Gaelic arts and culture and hosts a programme of residencies for artists in music, literature and the visual arts. ...Read more
