The Highland Theological College

The Highland Theological College is one of 15 Academic Partners in the UHI Millennium Institute. It is anticipated that, very soon, this government-designated Institute will become the University of the Highlands and Islands.

In 1992, the Rev Professor Andrew McGowan, a Church of Scotland minister and now College Principle, went to the Rev Alexander Murray, then minister of the APC Lairg and Rogart congregation, with a proposal to create a new theological college to be part of the emerging University of the Highlands and Islands.

They worked together for some time and then drew together a wider steering group to drive the vision forward. From humble beginnings as the Highland Theological Institute, begun in Elgin in 1994, came the College now based in Dingwall.

HTC is committed to high academic standards of teaching and learning and the desire is to provide opportunities for men and women to study the Christian faith, on a full-time, part-time or open learning basis, from an evangelical and Reformed perspective, in the context of a worshipping community.
