Sabhal Mòr Ostaig is the only college in the world which not only teaches the Gaelic language, but is also administered using Scottish Gaelic as the primary language.
"Sabhal Mor Ostaig is committed to being a centre of excellence for the development and enhancement of the Gaelic language, culture and heritage, by providing quality educational, training and research opportunities through the medium of Scottish Gaelic; and by interacting innovatively with individuals, communities and businesses, to contribute to social, cultural and economic development.
Current student numbers stand at approximately 100 on full-time courses, about 160 on distance learning courses, and up to 900 enrol on short courses each year. The College has a diverse student population, with a cross-section of ages and different nationalities. Though most of our students come from within Scotland and the UK, Sabhal Mor Ostaig has welcomed students from as far afield as North America, mainland Europe and Asia. Graduates of the College have gone on to Gaelic-related employment in many industries, adding their skills to the maintenance and development of the language."
Gaelic course information is available on the SMO web site which is an excellent resource.
