University of the Highlands & Islands


Prospective PGA assistants in Scotland have two routes towards PGA qualification through a new partnership between The PGA and the University of the Highlands & Islands.

Students are able to take either a BA Honours Degree in Professional Golf at the University’s Dornoch base next to the world-renowned Royal Dornoch Golf Club. There is also a new Diploma in Higher Education in Professional Golf which will be studied while students are in work at Scottish golf facilities.

The honours degrees are being delivered over a four year period on a full-time basis and are also available for part-time study. The diploma will be delivered by distance learning. The Professional Golf qualifications will ultimately lead to the opportunity for graduates to apply for PGA membership upon completion.

Please register your interest and our Admissions team will send you a link to the application form.
